Why You Should Not Visit The Marine Life Park At RWS

Merlion Wayfarer was at Sentosa when she spotted the dolphins at the RWS Marine Life Park. 

These two pictures taken were of different pools. Both pools had floors stained with algae growth. For each pool, there were several dolphins crammed into a space not much bigger than a volleyball court. In the second photo, two of the dolphins were beached, while another was knocking its head on the wall of the pool.

It was very heartrending to see them. 

Please do not visit the Marine Life Park at RWS.
