NIAGARA FALLS – ON – WEDNESDAY, October 15, 2014 – On Friday, October 10, 2014 Marineland welcomed the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) Zoo Inspection team for another of its regular and thorough inspections of all of our land animals, marine mammals and facilities.  We are pleased to report that no issues of concern were identified and the inspection was successful.

The inspection was part of the strict, new regulatory system established by the Government of Ontario.  The inspections process was established by the government last year following broad consultation with the public, including animal rights advocates and members of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums (CAZA-AZAC).

These inspections are important, not just because they proactively check on the health and welfare of the animals, but also because they provide the public with the confidence they rightfully demand that the animals they love are well cared for.

Marineland remains committed to the continuing health and welfare of all the incredible animals at Marineland.
