    Chimelong Ocean Kingdom recently received a new species of dolphin (in addition to fur seals and otters) called the Chinese White Dolphin which is a variety of the Indo Pacific Humpbacked Dolphin. Chimelong Ocean Kingdom originally planned on housing this dolphin species when the park was originally being constructed (read second paragraph: http://www.blooloop.com/news/pgav-destinations-construction-continues-on-chime/3607#.V1irNfT3aJJ)

    Haw Par said that UWS had to vacate the facility and cease operations as the lease on the Sentosa attraction was expiring in less than two years. Its pink dolphins, fur seals and otters have been transferred to Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai, China.

    Chimelong Ocean Kingdom has "one of the finest facilities in the world and a strong staff with expertise in marine mammal veterinary and husbandry care, as well as an active breeding and conservation programme", said Haw Par.

    Does anyone know where the expansion is going to be located compared to the current park?

    Construction is back on at Chimelong as they begin construction on 4 new adjoining theme parks.

    Construction has started at the Chimelong Zhuhai Resort, home of Thea Award recipient Ocean Kingdom, on four new theme parks. Chimelong will invest a total of $50 billion yuan (approximately US$7.5 billion) in the resortís expansion.

    Looks fantastic but I won't be going if you put orcas on display. To those who say "care about something else" how about you go and do something about the issues you care about rather than criticising people for wanting to change things for the better? Orcas are self-aware creatures like humans. They can see themselves as distinct from the environment. To keep them confined in tanks is equivalent to human slavery. Scientists worldwide speak out against captivity. They suffer and die prematurely. If you don't care about that, then that's your issue not ours. There are many problems in our world. Every person cares about something different and many people care about orcas, others care about people starving. Go do something about it if you so deeply care about human starvation.

    You do realize that orcas are Mamals and not fish?

    Orca lovers, did you know: every day, 20,000 people die from hunger! 20,000!! Care about them, not about fish.

    Speculation goes around that Chimelong is already in possession of two orcas who are currently held in sea pens somewhere in the park or near the park but not yet on public display.

    Most recent news state that Sea World is planning to expand to South Korea and open up a new Sea World park partnering up with Samsung Everland. If that is true, Chimelong Ocean Kingdom will likely profit from orca trades in the near future. It would take Sea World 2-4 years to open a new park in South Korea. If they do, the orca market in Asia is opening up anew. And then Chimelong will most likely try to make profit from the orca business as well. http://seaworldpledge.org/blog/seaworld-international-expansion-south-korea/

    All a bunch of heartless souls who only care about the money but have no understanding of how much damage captivity does to these wonderful creatures.
