New Date For Beluga Whale Transfer

Two beluga whales, Little Grey and Little White, are now scheduled to arrive in Iceland on 19th June after plans to move them in April from their current home in China to an ocean sanctuary in Iceland had to be postponed due to bad weather.

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.

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.

Read more about the project, and why we are helping to create sanctuaries for whales and dolphins.
