0/5.

Concerning the Orca Kshamenk.
The animal in this facilitiy lives in poor conditions: living in <1% of it's natural habitat, cut off from it's family and the world of sounds they live in. He is forced to perform in a vocally stressful, confined environment. Many Orcas become violent (attacking/killing trainers, abusing/killing other Orcas in the same tank), display sings of severe depression/mental disturbance (stay unmoving for hours on end, show abnormal repetitive behaviour etc.) or self-harm.

THIS PARK IS DISGUSTING, DO NOT SUPPORT IT!

san clemente del tuyu is located only 4 or 5 hours from the center of buenos aires. It's a fantastic place, there's different kind of animals and the main attractions are the dolphins, sea wolves, Killer Whales etc. all are presented in an interactive show with the people. you also can go in a small safari tour and give milk to baby goats. An excellent place to go in couple, family or friends.

This is a shame that you keep an orca in a very small pool like this.

You must release Kschamenk and do something good for once...

Whales live in terrible conditions. Extremely heartbreaking. If you are an animal lover do not pay money to go here it's too upsetting and will wreck your holiday. They should release the orca's. It's inhumane to keep them in those small pools.

Oh my god, I never in all my 45 years have seen such a disgusting place. They have a whale named Kshamenk there that can't move and his body is permantly bent from being held in such a small pool. DO NOT give this place your money, you will only help support this poor whale being abused 24/7. How this place is still open is beyond me.
