Watch the moment belugas Little Grey and Little White feel the ocean on their skin for the first time since they were babies – so exciting!
Watch the moment Little White and Little Grey came home to the ocean!
Hi I am so thrilled to share the amazing news with you – Little White and Little Grey are in their ocean sanctuary. For the first time in their adult lives, they can feel the salty water of the sea on their skin. They even met a puffin on their first day – who knows what they made of that after years in the sterile, barren environment of a tank!
Right now, they are in the care pool in the sanctuary bay where they are getting used to their new, natural environment. They will be here for a short time acclimatising before finally being released into the wider sanctuary bay. FULL STORY
