Ölüdeniz to get its first dolphinarium
« on: March 11, 2010, 15:49:17 PM »
250m2 x 4m deep for two dolphins to spend their entire summer in. That means a pool oops sorry dolphinarium possibly just 25 metres long by 10 metres wide.

Repulsive, I hope it fails and swiftly.

I cant believe they are opening this?! Surely this pool will not be big enough for 2 dolphins to live in for up to 6/7 months of the year!? I agree scunner, it is repulsive and i too hope it fails!

250m2 is incredible. As a comparison, the pools you see used for the swimming events at the Olympics are 1,250m2...and they hardly look huge.

This council have no idea of what British people want.

Lets organise a picket line, get the TV down, write letters to the newspapers, emails to the Ministry of Tourism, get Greenpeace here.

WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THIS BARBARITY by any means.

4 of the 11 dolphins in the Alanya Dolphinarium died in February. I hope this Dophinarium never happens in Olu Deniz.

And isn't this being built on a playground area which the yabancis in the area raised money to buy equipment for about 8 years ago?

What has happened to this equipment??
