WORLD'S FIRST 

BELUGA WHALE SANCTUARY

Conservation of Beluga Whales

Arcticus is proud to announce a new partnership with WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation to support the World's First Beluga Whale Sanctuary.

 

This unique sanctuary was created with the mission to provide formerly captive beluga whales with a safe and more natural home. It is hoped the project will help to encourage the rehabilitation of more captive beluga whales into natural environments in the future and one day bring an end to whale and dolphin captivity.

 

The sanctuaries' first residents are Little Grey and Little White. These amazing beluga whales have lived 12 years of their lives in captivity, which is why they require continuous care and assistance in the sanctuary, including providing them with food! Arcticus will donate 10% of its profits to the WDC to help finance Little Grey and Little White's diet, thousands of kilograms of fish sourced from local fishermen!

Little Grey

Diet: Herring & Capelin (up to 25 kg/day)


Little Grey is a 13 years old female born in Russia and she extremely curious and vocal. She was the first to swim out to explore the larger area in the sea Sanctuary and is often a bit naughty. Little Grey makes a wide range of vocalisations to the beluga care team when she wants attention or to express herself. She is very interested in anything new and often chooses to be the center of attention.


Arcticus is proud to help finance her diet responsibly sourced from local fisherman.

Little White

Diet: Herring & Capelin (up to 25 kg/day)


Little White is a 13 years old female born in Russia and she has a cautious and reserved demeanor until she gets to know her surroundings or the people nearby. She tends to follow Little Grey's lead, and forms a close bond with select members of her care team. Little White is also incredibly patient and likes to take her time exploring her surroundings.

Arcticus is committed to support the conservation of the Arctic Wildlife and we believe that this project can transform the lives of not only beluga whales but over 3,000 other whales and dolphins currently housed in traditional captive facilities or performing in shows around the world. We want to inspire the change needed to bring an end to the captivity of wildlife.
