Beluga Whale Sanctuary - Plane Unveiled

We have an exciting update for you - this is a photograph of the very special 747 aeroplane which will transport the two beluga whales, Little Grey and Little White from captivity in China over 6,000 miles to their new sanctuary home in Iceland. Europe’s leading all-cargo airline ‘Cargolux’ will sponsor this extraordinary beluga flight.  

WDC is a partner of the SEA LIFE TRUST beluga whale sanctuary project and we are all extremely grateful to Cargolux for their generosity in becoming our official transport partner. Cargolux has been working closely with the beluga care team and veterinarians to make sure we are all ready to provide the very best and most comfortable journey possible for Little Grey and Little White.
