Maple transfer?
      #138276 - 02/03/08 06:47 PM

I just found this import application for Maple, a female beluga born on July 3, 2005 to Denise and presumably Ben (both deceased) at Marineland of Canada. It looks like they aimed to transfer her to SWF in November, but I haven't heard anything of that happening, and that's right around when Spooky died. With the recent transfer of Nanuq back to SWC, the Commerson's to Aquatica, and the recent death of Nootka, might it be possible Maple was moved too?

The application is here

I can't find anything under the federal register for her, neither a receipt of application or any approval. (Both exist for the three boys.)

Something unrelated, but interesting, from 2006. I find their list of species to be an interesting one:

Sea World, Inc., has been issued a scientific research permit to
collect, receive, import, and export a specified number of marine
mammal specimens under the jurisdiction of NMFS and USFWS to study
reproductive physiology, including endocrinology, gamete biology,
cryophysiology, and assisted reproductive techniques. Species
authorized include bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), beluga
whale (Delphinapterus leucas), killer whale (Orcinus orca), Pacific
white-sided dolphin (Lagenorhynchus obliquidens), Commerson's dolphin
(Cephalorhynchus commersonii), short-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus
delphis), false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens), Baiji (Lipotes
vexillifer), Vaquita (Phocoena sinus), and walrus (Odobenus rosmarus).
Only specimens collected legally and in a humane manner would be
authorized by the permit. Sources of samples may include animals that
have already died and from captive animals during routine husbandry
procedures. No animals may be intentionally killed for the purpose of
collecting specimens, and no money can be offered for the specimens.
Specimens may be taken world-wide at anytime of the year for up to five
years.

I just read that Maple was transfered to SWF over the night of July 14 into July 15. Can anyone confirm this?

It's been said she's been seen in the back pools at Wild Arctic.
