Their new home is around 32,000 square meters and will be closed off with special netting.

The charity Sea Life Trust said the location is ideal because the cool coastal waters around the island provide a subarctic habitat, which is natural for belugas.

British-based Merlin Entertainments acquired Changfeng Ocean World aquarium in 2012, where the two whales had been performing for visitors.
