In the wild, walruses typically live in large herds. The only remaining walrus at Marineland is now living alone and still being used in performances until further notice, the aquarium said.
Now, Demers wants to encourage the public to support the move of the aquarium’s only walrus to a different facility where she can live with others.
"Her personality is such that she needs other walruses, she needs companionship," he said. "The situation is absolutely critical."
