Two beluga whales will receive their own sanctuary in a protected bay in Iceland next year. Known as Little Grey and Little White, they’ll be transported from their aquarium home in China where they can live in a more natural climate. The ultimate goal is to showcase to other water parks the advantages of transferring various fish to traditional habitats.
The SEA LIFE Trust is the organization behind creating the world’s first open water sanctuary for beluga whales. They’ve been campaigning for more Marine Protected Areas (MPA) around the world, which saves sea animals and their habitats. In addition, it helps our communities by improving fishing and eco-tourism.
