King Neptune is Dead.

A massive statue of King Neptune still looks out over a marine park that’s been closed for nearly 25 years.
Atlantis Marine Park opened in Yanchep, Western Australia in 1981 and hosted the typical array of aquarium wildlife like dolphins, sea lions, penguins and seals.
But in the late 1980s, regulations about the size of enclosures for dolphins changed, and accommodating them proved too costly for the owners.
All nine dolphins were rehabilitated and released back into the wild, but when three of them failed to thrive, they were relocated to another marine park.
Since then, the property has been in limbo, with much of the ruins retaken by nature.
No fences keep out members of the public, so anyone can get in to take photos and enjoy the views of the ocean (see below).
Members of the community have petitioned to restore the park but to no avail.
