Cousteau is ready in the near future to come to Primorye to save killer whales and beluga whales

Jean-Michel Cousteau, researcher and defender of the World Ocean, sent a letter to the governor of Primorye Oleg Kozhemyako stating his consent to the invitation to come to the region and help in the rehabilitation and release of killer whales and beluga whales from the whale prison in Srednyaya Bay. Oceanographer is ready to come soon.

The researcher said that the best option for killer whales and beluga whales - rehabilitation and return to the wild, and not life in captivity.

“I think it is important to start preparing animals for rehabilitation and release as soon as possible. Recent media reports indicate a possible deterioration in the health of killer whales and beluga whales in Sredniy Bay, which heightens our concern and makes it urgent to take measures to restore the health and rehabilitation of these cetaceans, ”notes Jean-Michel Cousteau in his letter.

The authorities of the region did not send an official invitation to the researcher. After him letters to the president Governor Oleg Kozhemyako told reporters that he invited Cousteau to Primorye. Oceanographer took advantage of this oral statement and decided to come to the region. He sent copies of his letter to President Vladimir Putin and the head of the Ministry of Natural Resources Dmitry Kobylkin.

“Cousteau and his team have very serious intentions. The Cousteau team wants to include killer whale rehabilitation specialists from the United States, New Zealand, and Canada, who have extensive experience in this field. Now, much depends on the administration of Primorsky Krai, it is necessary to establish a direct dialogue and resolve the issue with official invitations for the Cousteau team to receive visas, ”Dmitry Lisitsyn, head of the public organization Sakhalin Environmental Watch, told EastRussia.

Meanwhile, the killer whales and beluga trappers, kept in the whale prison in Primorye, wrote an appeal to Vladimir Putin and admitted that caught animals for foreign companies. They have already paid for contracts and are waiting for mammals for their aquariums.
