People’s Point Of View
A research professor at the University of Iceland questioned, what the massive operation has accomplished? Whale-watching to her means watching the mammals in their natural surroundings, which evidently Iceland is not. “Why to bring two whales, whose species is not naturally in Icelandic water, and keep them in captivity here?” asked the researcher. Although, both the whales are moved to Iceland, there have been no issues reported as of now, it is expected that both the female whales will help in raising the population of Iceland.
