In Primorye, instead of a whale prison there will be a whale hospital

The Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia intends to build a rehabilitation center for sick and wounded marine mammals in the bay of Central Primorsky Krai. Previously, there were water enclosures, called by the animal defenders "whale prison." About it сообщает RIA Novosti with reference to the interview with the head of the Ministry of Environment Dmitry Kobylkin.

"It would be good to create at the international level any alternative to such closed enclosures. In Russia, we will settle the issue legally. In addition, in Srednyaya Bay after resolving the situation, I am sure that we will create a rehabilitation center where we can send sick, injured animals , who strayed from the pack, needing the help of a person "- the official said.

The current prisoners of the "whale prison" will be free not before summer. "The return of killer whales and belugas will take place in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk not earlier than June," Vyacheslav Bizikov, deputy director of the All-Russian Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, said after the scientific consultation in the Federal Agency for Fishery.
