SEA LIFE TRUST is a registered charity (no. 1175859) working globally to protect the world’s oceans and the amazing marine life that lives within them.
SEA LIFE TRUST’s vision is of a world where our seas are healthy, protected and full of diverse life.
In partnership with the global SEA LIFE aquarium chain, we are able to reach a huge audience. We run inspiring conservation campaigns and fund projects and education programmes that champion the need for plastic-free oceans, sustainable fishing, effective Marine Protected Areas and an end to over-exploitation of marine life.
We also own and operate our own marine wildlife sanctuaries.
Creating the world’s first beluga whale sanctuary
The SEA LIFE TRUST is pleased to announce that thanks to a very generous donation from Merlin Entertainments we are building the world’s first beluga whale sanctuary in Iceland!
In early 2019 two previously captive belugas, Little White and Little Grey, will begin an epic 6,000 mile journey that will take them from a Shanghai aquarium to a new ocean home in a beautiful Icelandic bay.
This highly significant event will be the first time that captive beluga whales have ever been released to an ocean sanctuary and it is only because of the support we receive from our project partners – SEA LIFE, Merlin Entertainments and Whale and Dolphin Conservation, that Little White and Little Grey are able to take this significant journey.
All of us who care deeply about the welfare of whales and dolphins hope that it will signal a more positive future for these amazing animals.
