Beluga pod not updating
Beluga pod not updating - excel formulas stop updating
In the case of the Russian dolphin and whale release that is now taking place, no outsiders are allowed to participate in the transport and release, or even monitor how the mission is carried out.
Putin, the Russian Federal Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography announced the remaining whales – 10 orcas and 87 beluga whales – would be released in groups from June until October 2019.
This process has now begun, with two orcas and six beluga whales on route to their release location. While Dolphin Project applauds the Russian government’s decision to finally release the whales, there are several “unknowns” surrounding the release process.
We are unaware of any efforts made to locate the pods from which the orcas and beluga whales were captured.
Whales from different areas of the world speak different dialects.
When Sea World shuffles these animals from park to park to use them for breeding, the hodgepodge of animals that results no more constitutes an actual pod than strangers from France, Germany, and Spain could be considered a family.
After two orcas and three beluga whales “disappeared” under questionable circumstances, the Russian government stepped in and initiated a criminal investigation of the four private companies involved in the capture.
The companies have been fined as the investigation continues.
Most recently, the company transferred two whales to the Georgia Aquarium: Imaq, a male, came from Sea World San Antonio, and Whisper, a female, came from Sea World Orlando.
Prior to that, the Georgia Aquarium had shuffled male beluga Aurek to Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium to be used for breeding there after the female of breeding age, Maris (who’d been at the Georgia Aquarium), died unexpectedly of heart failure.
They deserve to spend the rest of their days with a semblance of the freedom that they would’ve enjoyed in nature, not being used to create more prisoners for captive-animal displays.
The extremely rare sighting triggered wonder and excitement when the whale was first seen on Tuesday, but after it was spotted again on Wednesday in exactly the same location, concerns grew that the beluga had got lost and was potentially in danger.
6/26/19: Almost a year after 12 orcas and 90 beluga whales were illegally captured from the Sea of Okhotsk, off the coast of Russia, the process of releasing the surviving mammals back into their home range has begun.
