On Behalf of PROMAR; the aquarium in Roquetas de Mar, que town in Southern Spain where baby dolphin Marcos (www.facebook.com/MarcosTheDolphin) was rescued by PROMAR, is facing closure. If action is not taken the fish and sharks residing in the faciltiy will die if the power is turned off. Finding the marine life a new home is proving difficult and it is considerably cheaper for other aquariums to buy new specimens than obtain the ones living at this aquarium.
Here is a direct translation of the letter being sent to the Mayor of Roqutas De Mar:
Gabriel Amat, SR. MAYOR Roquetas de Mar
SR. MAYOR Roquetas de Mar
Don Gabriel Amat Ayllon
I learned that the Roquetas Aquarium is about to close due to poor economic situation of their debts and, specifically concerning Endesa electricity, this company acting accordingly by removing the power supply, which would death for all animals in these facilities.
You, like the rest of the town of Roquetas de Mar, has been publicly happy and has repeatedly supported this initiative that brought the town a major educational and economic resource.
The survival of thousand animals from different seas and oceans, should not depend on a business transaction whether or not successful, it would not be ethical or moral.
What is going concern to all people of good will, of Roquetas de Mar and out ... that is where the most important representative of the public, the Mayor, to act, setting an example of sanity and good work.
It is therefore requested to intervene and resolve this issue by ensuring the lives of animals, also leading the initiative to establish governance arrangements that are operating ... as could be to establish a foundation, ushering in a variety of entities, both public and private. Studying likewise other formulas.
Thanks for listening, I hope your positive response to this request.
