Park News - (2/13/21) According to this article Parc Asterix has announce that the theme park will be closing down their Dolphin and Sea Lion show. The park is said to have been considering this move for several years now, but has been prompted to take action now as possible legislation may soon be on the way that could put new rules into how marine mammals animals are cared for and treated.
