Marine Life Park will be an oceanarium located in Resorts World Sentosa, Sentosa Island, Singapore. It is set to debut as the largest oceanarium in the world when it opens in 2012.[1] The 8-hectare (20-acre)[2] park will feature exhibits containing a total of 20,000,000 imperial gallons (91,000,000 l) of water, for 700,000 aquatic residents[5] The park's largest lagoon contains 6,600,000 imperial gallons (30,000,000 l) of water.

Controversies

The resort originally planned to include whale sharks, but conceded that it might not be feasible to house them and has dropped the plan.[6] There is ongoing controversy over captures of wild dolphins from Solomon Islands and the facilities in which they are kept in Subic Bay, Philippines, some of which have reportedly died.[7] A petition for Resorts World Singapore to release 25 dolphins held in captivity exceeded the 100,000 mark in August 2011.
