The COVID-19 pandemic and the Luzon-wide community quarantine have not only affected humans, but animals as well. In Subic, Zambales, Ocean Adventure has appealed for donors to help care for the marine animals housed in the marine theme park.
“Since the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine over Luzon in March, our revenue has gone down to zero and will remain so for the short term, while our costs and expenses remain high due to the caring and feeding of our animals and maintenance of our facilities,” said Subic Bay Marine Exploratorium President and Chief Executive Officer Robert Gonzaga in a statement.
Donations will be used to purchase animal food, medicine, and vitamins; as well as to help support animal caretakers, divers, veterinarians, laboratory technicians, and volunteers who provide for the health care of the animals. The funds will also pay for utilities for the pumps, freezers, and other equipment.
