Whales, dolphins moved from Shedd Aquarium

MYSTIC, Conn. (AP) -- The John G. Shedd Aquarium in Chicago has temporarily transferred seven beluga whales and four Pacific white-sided dolphins to the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration. The animals will stay at the Connecticut facility for a nine-month visit while renovations to their exhibit in Chicago are finished. Shedd's two male and five female belugas will join Mystic's one male and two female belugas in the 800,000-gallon Arctic Coast exhibit. The dolphins are the first at Mystic since 2001. They'll live in the Aquatic Animal Study Center, which will be open to the public for the first time. A dozen Shedd employees will work in Mystic for the next nine months to help care for the animals.
