Aquarium-bound whales to swim free - Russia releases captives back into the wild

Positive news comes from Russia; captive beluga and killer whales are being transported to their natural habitats as part of a four-month operation. The whales, originally captured for sale to Chinese aquariums, will be taken back to where they were caught.

Their plight caught the imagination of many worldwide including celebrities, who petitioned for their release from captivity. It is heartening to hear that the creatures will be returned to familiar territory and back into their natural environment where they belong.
