Sea World's Gary Faucher: Up Close Encounters

Posted: Updated:

Gary Faucher was with us from Sea World...where guests can now get an interactive and up close encounter with the beluga whales.

Fun Facts About Beluga Whales:

  • Belugas are gregarious and they form groups of up to 10 animals on average, although during the summer months, they can gather in the hundreds or even thousands in estuaries and shallow coastal areas.
  • The majority of belugas live in the arctic and the seas and coasts around North America, Russia and Greenland; their worldwide population is thought to number around 150,000 individuals.
  • Whale hunting has been under international control since 1973. Currently, only certain Eskimo groups are allowed to carry out subsistence hunting of belugas.
  • Belugas are one of the cetaceans most commonly kept in captivity in aquaria and wildlife parks in North America, Europe and Asia; they are popular with the public due to their colour and expressivity.
