MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH)– A team from Mystic Aquarium is ready to make the trip to Jamestown, Rhode Island after a pod of Beluga whales were spotted in the water there.
Experts from the Aquarium say based on footage they’ve seen the behavior of those whales look normal, but they want to see them first hand to be sure.
The team is working with NOAA Fisheries and local authorities to locate three whales for further investigation during the daylight hours in Narrangansett Bay.
Once they see the whales, the experts will determine if they need to help them in any way.
Mystic Aquarium is one of the leaders in Beluga whale research.
