New date set for beluga move to sanctuary

Two belugas will move from captivity in China to their new ocean bay home

Following bad weather preventing the initial operation to move two beluga whales from captivity in China to a new ocean home in Iceland, we’re pleased to confirm a new date has been set for the departure of Little Grey and Little White.

Our top priority has always been Little Grey and Little White’s welfare and we’ve been working hard with our expert project team and travel partners Cargolux to find a suitable option to safely relocate the whales to their new open water sanctuary home on the Island of Heimaey.

Little Grey and Little White are now scheduled to arrive in Iceland on June 19th and will continue to prepare for this complex journey.

All of the logistical implications in rescheduling the move have been confirmed and we’d like to thank all of those partners and suppliers who have been working tirelessly with us to support this move.
