    Are these animals expected to be released back into the wild or sent to zoos or other?

    Just to clarify, the AZA accreditation was their regular five year renewal (as told me by a staff member). I realize the article on their website makes it sound as if it is a first time accreditation (which it is not).

    Interesting. I wonder which aquarium he will be sent to? How many facilities even have belugas? I assume it is the half dozen or so listed in the article as "offering assistance."

    My guess is that the calf will go to SeaWorld Texas, as they have a calf around the same age. Georgia Aquarium may have been an option earlier with the loss of the calf, the female may have adopted this calf, but probably too late for that now.

    These facilities in the US have beluga on display:
    SeaWorld Texas
    SeaWorld California
    SeaWorld Florida
    Georgia Aquarium
    Mystic Aquarium
    Shedd Aquarium
