Both whales had lived and performed at Changfeng Ocean World for many years but will now live out the remainder of their lives at the world’s first beluga whale sanctuary which is approximately 32,000 sqm with a depth of up to 10m.

The SEA LIFE Trust Beluga Whale Sanctuary was created in partnership with Dolphinaria-Free Europe members Whale and Dolphin Conservation and is the first of its kind to be created for captive cetaceans. Congratulations to all involved and we are delighted that these whales will now live a life free of performing in more natural conditions.
