Health of captive orcas in doubt after marine park is hit by flooding

Floods that have devastated parts of the south of France over the weekend have also caused substantial damage to Europe’s largest marine theme park (see french news video below).

Tanks holding orcas at Marineland in Antibes have reportedly been polluted after filling with muddy flood waters and electrical supplies in the area have also been affected, raising fears for the survival of the marine mammals there.

Marineland was in the news recently when, Freya (pictured), a female orca died after spending almost her entire life in captivity.
