Dodds explains that all captive facilities should have contingency plans in place for their animals' relocation in case of emergencies such as this:
"Marineland Antibes should be able to confirm its plans as a matter of urgency. If it isn't able to do this, then the question must be asked why."
Among other species at Marineland Antibes, tropical fish, turtles, penguins, shark and sea lions are known to have been affected, with sharks, rays and fish having been reported to have died. Muriel Arnal, President of One Voice in France, states:
"Marineland Antibes has said it is doing everything it can so that the animals can go back to a normal life and that this is the facility's priority."
However, Arnal questions whether the "normal" captive life is good enough for the facility's cetaceans:
"There is nothing normal about whales and dolphins living in very confined spaces, performing tricks for entertainment in shows. It is high time France becomes dolphinaria-free. Our country should not be the last in Europe to take this ethical step."
