In the Primorsky Territory, the operation to release prisoners of the “whale prison” into the natural habitat was completed. The remaining belugas were transported in three lots due to bad weather conditions.

According to the VNIRO press service, preparations for the last release started on November 5, although scientists promised to do this by November 1. All animals from Srednyaya Bay were released in the Assumption Bay of the Lazovsky District on November 10.

Killer whales were brought to the place of release by two research vessels - the Zodiac and Professor Kaganovsky. They decided to release the animals not in Okhotsk, like the rest, but to the sea of ​​japan. Despite the fact that it is not a natural range of beluga whales, in this area there is now a good food supply for them. The Freedom of Killer Whales and Beluga Whales coalition supported this decision, since otherwise the release of animals would have become impossible.

Around 100 beluga whales and killer whales caught in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk in 2018 year for sale in China. After the intervention of public figures, and then law enforcement, violations were identified, and at the end of June this year animals started to release in batches.
