News From the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society:

Two very special belugas have arrived at their new sanctuary home…

Yesterday, Little White and Little Grey arrived safely in Iceland! 

If you’ve been following this story, you’ll know that we have been working with the SEA LIFE Trust to create the world’s first ocean sanctuary for whales.

We realised a long time ago that it is no use calling for an end to captivity unless there is somewhere for captive whales and dolphins to go. After years of planning and mind-boggling logistical challenges, the first two whales have arrived at their new sanctuary home. They will be monitored by our experts in a quarantine area to make sure they are fully fit after their long journey before being released into the sea.
