Doing What Comes Naturally
Our beluga shows are based on behaviours that belugas do naturally in the wild. These exercises keep them stimulated and healthy, and they reinforce the bond that the animals have with their trainers. Since it’s impossible to ask a 1,500 kilogram animal to do something they don’t want to do, the trainers spend a lot of time building a relationship of trust with the belugas—and reward them not just with food, but with tummy rubs, tongue massages and whatever else the animals enjoy.
