May be shouldn't eat fish as well because you're chasing them in the sea for their meat. Very stress, imagine someone chasing you & trying to cut you into pieces

Knowing PETA, they'll actually agree with your suggestions as well.

SPCA calls on RWS to release remaining 23 dolphins
POSTED: 04 Jun 2014 12:18


In the wake of the death of a fourth dolphin at the Marine Life Park in 18 months, SPCA Singapore has called on Resorts World Sentosa to release its remaining 23 wild-caught dolphins.

SINGAPORE: In the wake of the death of a fourth dolphin at the Marine Life Park in 18 months, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA Singapore) on Wednesday (June 4) called on Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) to release its remaining 23 wild-caught dolphins.

The death of Sharmila, a bottlenose dolphin, was announced in a blogpost by the Marine Life Park on May 12.

"We are conducting tests to confirm the exact cause of death. Prior medical tests indicated that she was healthy. We are closely monitoring all our animals, and as always, no effort or resources will be spared in ensuring the health and well-being of our dolphins at Dolphin Island," the park said in the post. No updates have since been provided.

Said SPCA Singapore Executive Director Corinne Fong in its June 4 media statement: "In a country like Singapore, with the Wild Animals and Birds Act in place prohibiting any person from killing, taking or keeping any wild animal, it is extremely disappointing that we are accepting these wild-caught dolphins for the purpose of forcing them to adapt to an unnatural lifestyle in RWS' Marine Life Park attraction.

"Subjecting these wild dolphins to a forced lifestyle in captivity, tamed against their will and introducing paid interaction programmes with the public marketed as 'engagement learning', is, in essence, unabashed animal exploitation.

"The act of catching and confining these animals, in limited spaces and training them to become something they are not, cannot possibly contribute towards constructive education of the public on marine life and environmental issues."

This echoes calls by other environmentalists, including one by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Asia in a letter published in TODAY on May 15. (Click here to read the letter.)

The dolphins are the centerpiece of the park's Dolphin Island attraction. They first hit the headlines in 2009 when three dolphins died of bacterial infections before they arrived from the Solomon Islands, where they had been caught in the wild.

Youths take part in apprenticeship programme at RWS
By Alice Chia
POSTED: 27 Jun 2014 22:26


They took on roles as housekeeping attendants, front desk receptionists and butlers at Resorts World Sentosa.

SINGAPORE: Some 30 youths took part in an apprenticeship programme and got a taste of what it is like to work in a hotel.

They took on roles as housekeeping attendants, front desk receptionists and butlers at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS).

These less privileged youths, aged 15 to 18, learnt about hotel operations by working alongside RWS staff.

To mark the end of the two-week programme, the youths received certificates from Minister for Social and Family Development Chan Chun Sing.

'Shark whisperer' gets up close with SEA Aquarium's resident sharks
By Livia Yap
POSTED: 06 Aug 2014 16:34


Shark conservationist Cristina Zenato will share her knowledge with marine scientists and conduct shark interaction sessions from Thursday to Saturday.

SINGAPORE: Ms Cristina Zenato - dubbed the "Shark Whisperer" for her ability to induce "tonic immobility" in sharks, by rubbing her fingers across the shark's head and face - met the 100 resident sharks of Resorts World Singapore's SEA Aquarium on Wednesday (Aug 6).

While she was not able to immobilise the sharks here, she was able to feed a sandbar shark by hand in a demonstration on Wednesday.

In theory, such a state of immobility would allow scientists to study sharks in a low-stress environment, while tasks such as collecting DNA samples and vital data as well as removing fish hooks can be done with greater ease.

Ms Zenato - here for the aquarium's shark conservation month and Shark Savers Singapore's local campaign - said she hopes to dispel the negative perception of sharks as man-eating monsters.

She will share her knowledge with marine scientists from Thursday to Saturday. Visitors will also get to see her in action in shark interaction sessions over the three days.

Hopefully Battlestar Galactica will open in due time too. Last word was that it was to open in 'early 2015'.
