"We are in a race against time to help him," said Lamya Essemlali, president of Sea Shepherd France, indicating the arrival of one of his teams arrived in the Eure on Thursday evening.

It was in this department, near a lock located about 70 km from Paris, that the beluga was located.

Spotted for the first time on August 2 in the morning, the cetacean is “emaciated” and in a “worrying” state, according to the Eure prefecture.

Equipped with a drone, two former cetacean caretakers and a marine biologist, the Sea Shepherd team will attempt to carry out feeding operations.

A not easy task because the animal is difficult to approach for the moment.

What Lamya Essemlali wants to "absolutely avoid", "is the same scenario as for the killer whale".

Last May an orca was also spotted in the Seine.

She died a few days later of starvation, authorities said.

For the president of Sea Shepherd, if "nothing is gained for the beluga", the story has a better chance of experiencing a happy ending.

“There is already a desire to help him, we are not in the same wait-and-see phase as there may have been for the orca, notes Lamya Essemlali.

Belugas are also more resistant to fresh water”.
