Located in a lock 70 kilometers from Paris, the beluga is "always subject to surveillance by the State and the associations concerned.



Are we heading for a new drama in the waters of the Seine?

After the death of an orca last May, starved to death after finding itself in difficulty between Rouen and Le Havre, the beluga whale present in the Seine sees its situation deteriorating day by day, while it "is still evolving at Notre-Dame de la Garenne”, according to the Eure prefecture, contacted by AFP this Saturday morning.

Indeed, according to the authorities, the cetacean, whose presence in the Seine is exceptional, still continues not to eat this Saturday, while it has been in a lock since Friday located 70 km from Paris.

“There is no feeding from him.

(…) It is still subject to surveillance by the State and the associations concerned, ”added the prefecture.

Our teams took turns with the beluga all night long.

He always ignores the fish offered to him.

We will take stock of the situation with the State services during the day.

Earlier in the morning, the Sea Sheperd association indicated on its Twitter account: “Our teams took turns with the beluga all night.

He always ignores the fish offered to him.

We will take stock of the situation with the State services during the day.

The lock, which is approximately 200m long, is closed and closed to navigation until further notice.

According to the Pelagis observatory, which specializes in marine mammals, it is the second beluga known in France after a fisherman from the Loire estuary brought one up in his nets in 1948. The beluga, which measures around 4 meters in adulthood, is a protected species of cetacean usually living in cold waters.
