In the wild, belugas live in cold Arctic waters. They are highly intelligent and social individuals who are rarely found on their own.

Sadly, over 200 belugas around the world don’t have the chance to live with their families in the wild, but are held in small tanks in various zoos and aquariums.

The Georgia Aquarium in America would like to bring another 18 belugas into the USA from Russia where they were captured off the coast.

At the moment, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the States is considering the aquarium’s request.

Many people and organisations like WDC, believe that whales and dolphins belong in the wild. And we were very pleased to see that a poll run by Time for Kids Magazine shows that 62% of children who have so far taken part agree.

To take part in their poll, or let them know what you think about belugas being kept in captivity, just visit the Time For Kids website.
