Today new information about the upcoming release of 3 killer whales from the whale prison became available.

“On Thursday, the second operation to transport and release orcas will begin. So far, it seems, the route is planned to be the same as last time,” said a source.

According to the data of the unified procurement information system, on July 9, VNIRO signed contracts with the capture companies to transport the animals in the amount of 30 million rubles, 10 million for each killer whale.

We hope that this release will be more transparent! You can ask VNIRO to make it transparent in the comments on @vniro_life, via email [email protected] The public from all over the world is worried about the fate of killer whales and beluga whales from the whale jail – secrecy in this unprecedented case like this causes great distrust and anxiety.
