Beluga whales, like humans, experience pain, fear, pleasure, grief, and joy, as well as positive emotions. They aren’t things; they are people who deserve to be treated with dignity.
Even more so when they are kept in captivity, as these two whales from the Ocean World water park in Shanghai, People’s Republic of China, are.
Little Gray and Little White, two magnificent beluga whales, could not control their joy when they were released from the aquarium into the wild.

They were relocated 10,000 kilometers away. Finally, both sister beluga whales were on their way to a new and better location, especially Iceland, to the north.
