Thanks to the British charity Sea Life Trust the two beluga whales, named Little Grey and Little White, are finally freed into the world's first open water sanctuary in Iceland after almost a decade since they were taken to perform tricks at Ocean World in Shanghai, China.
Beluga whales can form extensive social networks, even across distances, a new study finds. The sea creatures communicate through echolocation, just like killer whales and bats, that allow them to communicate with other individuals from far away.
Mother's Day took on a whole new meaning for the folks at the Georgia Aquarium following the triumphant birth of a beluga whale - the first to be born to parents bred in captivity. And mother and baby are doing just fine.
