Dolphins will be moved to Attica Zoological Park

This week four young dolphins from Lithuanian Sea Museum will travel to Greece. Bite, Lima, Nojus and Gile, who were born in captivity, will live for at least five years in Athens' zoo called Attica Zoological Park. Trainers and vets from Lithuania will monitor their health and train them in Greece. The dolphins will leave their home on March 24.

Because of 3 dolphin births in the last two years, Lithuanian Sea Museum keeps 11 dolphins at the moment and ran out of place. Constructions for the dolphinarium are already planned and after the move of the four young dolphins, the remaining seven animals will be moved to another zoo in Europe, most likely the Spanish park on Tenerife.

NOTE: It's unknown which park on Tenerife they will be transferred to, there is Aqualand in the South of the Island and Loro Parque located in Puerto de la Cruz.
