Rescuers face race against time to rescue beluga whale in France’s River Seine

Quick Summary

In May, an orca died in the Seine after attempts failed to lure it back to the ocean using a drone emitting whale sounds.

Sightings of whales, dolphins and walruses are likely to be more common in areas across Europe given the onset of climate change, Sandeman said.“With ice melting, animals are able to access locations they were only previously able to get to once or twice per year.

The beluga, an endangered species that is better suited to freezing arctic and subarctic waters, was first spotted Tuesday, said Pasco-Viel, who is responsible for monitoring it.
