In Vladivostok, staged a picket for the release of prisoners of the "whale prison"
On the Korabelnaya Embankment in Vladivostok, animal defenders held a picket in support of the release of killer whales and beluga whales from the "whale prison" in the coastal bay of Srednyaya. Activists demand that they immediately start preparing animals for return to their natural habitat.
The picket was timed to the meeting of the working group, at which the fate of animals would be finally decided. According to Interfax, representatives of Greenpeace believe that, despite the statements of the authorities, the conditions of keeping nearly a hundred belugas and killer whales do not change, and the recommendations of scientists from the team of Jean-Michel Cousteau have not yet been fulfilled: animals continue to be fed from their hands, kept under roof and not expanded.
In April, Jean-Michel Cousteau, who visited Primorye, declared that all animals from Srednyaya Bay can be rehabilitated and set free, there are no scientifically-based reasons why mammals should be left in the “whale prison”. Russian scientists agreed with this, they recommended releasing killer whales and belugas in places where mammals were caught in the north-western part of the Sea of Okhotsk, in Shantarsky district.
Today, Primorye authorities have announced that it is planned to release killer whales and belugas during one to two months. It remains to wait for the final decision of scientists and veterinarians, who must determine exactly when and how to produce killer whales and beluga whales from the enclosures.
