White Whales Soar through Open Waters

Though belugas are known as the true “white whales,” they are not completely white – the edges of their flippers and tail flukes are actually dark.  As they age, their flukes grow more ornate and curved, and in mature males their pectoral fins may curl up at the tips.  These fins are broad, short, and paddle-like on belugas, acting like rudders to control movement through the water and giving belugas remarkable agility in shallow waters.

This week, help WDC ask Southwest Airlines to protect the “wingtips” of these wild belugas: “Say NO to sponsoring the Georgia Aquarium! Wild Russian belugas should not be captive in US tanks. Southwest, help protect the spirit of these wild belugas!

Thank you for your support in keeping belugas safe and free. Check back next week for a new beluga fact & another action alert!
