GIANT ‘HALO’ HABITAT SAILS 48 MILES TO SUPPORT BELUGAS RETURN TO ICELANDIC SANCTUARY BAY HOME
Thursday, 21 April 2022
A specially designed floating habitat (adapted especially for this world-first project) has been created as an additional step to support two beluga whales’ return to their open water sea sanctuary home. It arrived at a remote Icelandic island following an extraordinary 16-hour journey by tugboat. Designed and created especially for the world’s first SEA LIFE Trust Beluga Whale Sanctuary, seafarers would be forgiven for looking twice at the incredible structure which resembles a giant halo when it made the 48 mile crossing on freezing waters from mainland Iceland to Heimaey.
