The Ministry of Environment announced the release of killer whales and beluga whales from the Medium Bay in Primorye
The head of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia Dmitry Kobylkin said that the operation to free the killer whales and beluga whales from the Medium Bay in Primorye will start soon. The state inspectors of Rosprirodnadzor, together with representatives of the Amur Basin Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Investigative Inspectorate for the Khabarovsk Territory, and specialists from the research institutes plan to begin examining animals. After that, experts will decide on the exact time and method of release of mammals from enclosures.
In addition, the Council under the President of Russia for the development of civil society and human rights sent an appeal to the governor of Primorye Oleg Kozhemyako with a request to personally intervene in the situation with the maintenance of killer whales and beluga whales in the "whale prison" in Srednyaya Bay. The head of the region was asked to take emergency measures to preserve the health and life of animals.
The HRO was concerned about reports of environmentalists about the deteriorating state of mammals. Experts attribute this to the inadequate heating of the cages, where animals are kept, an insufficient supply of fatty calorie foods and poor disinfection. For these reasons, the Council asked Oleg Kozhemyako to take all possible measures to protect animals.
However, on the same day, the press service of the governor said that everything with killer whales and beluga whales is in order. Contrary to the statements of environmentalists, scientists of the Pacific Branch of FGBNU VNIRO (TINRO) stated that the animals are kept in good conditions: the water is clean, there is space for free movement, no signs of depletion are noted. According to scientists, producing beluga whales and killer whales is dangerous for their lives, as animals adapted to live in semi-volatile conditions and switched to "artificial" food.
