AN ORCA IN GTA V “PLAYSTATION 4, XBOX ONE AND PC VERSION” TRAILER
I KNOW, WHAT IM GONNA DO IN THIS GAME
Going home from my vacation in Israel. ;___; Don’t want to go to school, urgh.
But I saw “Jumbo” in airport :) Really love airplanes.
Found some news and photos of the model of Oceanarium in Moscow.
As we can see, building is divided into two parts. Aquariums and “theater of pinnipeds” will be placed underground and the dolphinarium, cafes, restaurants and technical premises will be placed aboveground.
On 3rd photo there is two back pools: the left one looks very narrow and this is probably for dolphins or belugas; right one looks bigger, so, this is probably for orcas. We saw the same on pictures from that post - (X).
Some of you probably may think, that the oceanarium is actually big, but no. Almost all model is white and white visually expands the space. Or at least look - arena is wider than the main pool.
More photos here: (X)
By the way: this article (x) says the oceanarium will welcome its first visitors next year!
But, there is a few contradictions.
1. There is info in that article, like Narnia was illegaly captured by poachers, and then government of the Far East “took away their catch.” But that capture was legal.
2. Article also says, that two orcas were transported to Moscow at the end of 2013 (x). But this article (x) quotes the deputy mayor of Moscow:
"Authorities had already purchased killer whales, which are currently contained in the special sea pen in the Far East. Whales are already waiting in the wings to move to Moscow."
Looks like the deputy mayor doesn’t know what he is talking about: it’s 99,9% probability that Narnia and young male are in iron tanks on territory of All-Russia Exhibition Center. Some of AREC visitors heard sounds of orcas, splashes, breathing and some guys claim that they heard even the sound of trainer’s whistle.
WILD ORCA CAPTURES WILL ONLY STOP PERMANENTLY IF THERE IS NO DEMAND FOR CAPTIVE ORCAS.
STOP FUCKING VISITING PARKS WITH ORCAS AND STOP CREATING THE DEMAND.
According to the Marine Mammal Council, in July in the western part of the Okhotsk Sea (Nikolay Gulf) were captured 4 killer whales (two in the middle of July and two in the end). They have been exported to China. Capture was carried out prior to approval of the TAC for 2014. Company that engage…

According to the Marine Mammal Council, in July in the western part of the Okhotsk Sea (Nikolay Gulf) were captured 4 killer whales (two in the middle of July and two in the end). They have been exported to China. Capture was carried out prior to approval of the TAC for 2014. Company that engage the capture, says that the animals were caught in 2013 and kept during the winter in the Nikolay Gulf. Marine Mammal Council sent a letter with the above information to the Attorney General, in Rosprirodnadzor, the Maritime inspection of the FSB and the Public Chamber.
Via Russian Orcas forum: (x)
One of Moscow residents visited All-Russia Exhibition Center yesterday to see what’s happening with orcas and the oceanarium.
She heard splashes and maybe breathing while staying near the dome. As for oceanarium, some workers said, that the oceanarium will be completed only by 2016! So, if it’s true, orcas will spend 1 year more in tank(-s), which diameter is only 20 meters and depth is 5 meters. Little reminding: Narnia believed to be 5-6 meters long. Now only imagine, if she and another male live in the same tank. Horrible.
Two albino orcas were sighted today near the southern Kuril Islands!
Albino on 1st photo is believed to be an adult female or sub-adult male.
