  • Sky News published this video item, entitled “A pair of beluga whales have gained freedom in Iceland after captivity in China” – below is their description.

    A pair of beluga whales have been flown to freedom on Iceland after a decade in captivity entertaining spectators in China. The whales were captured as babies, taken to a Russian research centre and then to China to work in entertainment for a decade. After long long in captivity they can’t be released to the open ocean as they do not have the skills to survive. But while they cannot swim off to sea in their new surroundings, they do have new challenges including rocks, fish and depth changes.
