The Georgia Aquarium wants Russia to send 18 beluga whales to them for breeding.
This does NOT sit well with Kim Basinger and PETA!!!
The actress has sent a letter to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association to dissuade the organization to deny the aquarium their permit request.
PETA reports that the belugas will partake in a dangerous journey and locked away in tanks comparable to bathtubs to humans for the rest of their lives.
The NOAA will hold a open forum today and Kim and PETA want your help to stop the permit and save the whales!
