REINFORCEMENTS IN MMBI PINNIPED SQUAD. TASS CORRESPONDENTS TRYED TO UNDERSTAND: "WHY SHLEPA IS NOT SELENA’S FRIEND?"

25.05.2017

In December 2016, during the MMBI expedition on the Bolshoy Kiy island, 5 pups of a gray seal were caught. Kids were named Fess, Shlepa, Tabitha, Selena and Kamrad. Animals were firstly adapted and fed in dry enclosures conditions at the aquacomplex in Gadzhievo. Seals were transferred to open-air cages of Polyarny aquacomlex after quarantine measures. Here, animals began to engage the primary training program (training of "bridge signal," "target" and tactile contact).

Recently they became the "stars" of information space, when their success was written by journalists of the Russian Information Agency.http://tass.ru/arktika-segodnya/4255940
