Ecologists consider irrational release of killer whales "from whale prison" in small groups (version 2)

(added the statements of a member of the Cousteau team)

Vladivostok. June 20. INTERFAX - FAR EAST - the Head of the public organization "Ecological watchkeeping of Sakhalin" Dmitry Lisitsyn called the beginning of the release of killer whales and belugas from the "whale prison" a big step forward, but considers, that the automobile transportation of animals is not the best solution.


During the "straight line" with Russian President Vladimir Putin showed the story that two killer whales and six Beluga whales from the Bay of Middle in Primorye were loaded into containers. The transportation by car, and then by river transport to Khabarovsk Krai to the place of catch in the Sea of Okhotsk began.

The French oceanologist Jean-Michel Cousteau twice sent the appeal to the leadership of Russia with a request  to release animals from "whale prison". Also, Cousteau with the team visited Primorye at the invitation of the Ministry of natural resources for advice on rehabilitation and possible release of animals from cages."
