Nanuq, a male beluga who lived at SeaWorld Orlando’s Wild Arctic habitat, has died. Nanuq was estimated to be 31 or 32 years old, and was on a long-term breeding loan from Vancouver Aquarium. Nanuq lived with SeaWorld Orlando’s other beluga whales, Whisper, Aurek, and Maple.
We extend our heartfelt sympathies and thoughts to SeaWorld, Vancouver Aquarium, and Nanuq’s trainers. He will be missed.
