The famous Hollywood diva Pamela Anderson wrote a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin. In it, the actress thanked the head of state for saving killer whales and belugas from the “whale prison” and asked not to allow the catch of cetaceans in 2020.

According to Dmitry Lisitsin, head of the Sakhalin Environmental Watch public organization, EastRussia, the actress drew Vladimir Putin's attention to the fact that trapping is a huge stress for whales, injuries, death, and a decrease in population in the long run. She noted that this negatively affects not only captured animals, but also everyone else who remains in the ocean.

“If all dolphins and whales are free in the sea, and not imprisoned for fun, the protection of cetaceans will rightfully merit Russia,” the actress noted in her letter.

Now social activists are concerned about the situation with belugas, which have not yet been released into the wild. 60 mammals still remain in captivity in Srednyaya Bay in Primorsky Krai. There is less and less time for their release.

Around 100 beluga whales and killer whales caught in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk in 2018 year for sale in China. After the intervention of public figures, and then law enforcement, violations were identified, and at the end of June this year animals started to release in batches.
