SEA LIFE TRUST Beluga Whale Sanctuary update

Friday, 17 May 2019


We’re pleased to confirm a new date has been set for the departure of Little Grey and Little White from their current home in China.

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.

Little Grey and Little White are now scheduled to arrive in Iceland on 19th June and will continue to prepare for this complex journey.

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.
