MOSCOW, August 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Dolphins from the Moscow Branch of Utrish Dolphinarium will take part in a dolphin show, which will be held in Pakistan in autumn. A corresponding agreement to this effect will be signed with the Pakistani side in the nearest future, a source from the Moscow Dolphinarium told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
The construction of a dolphin pool has already begun in Pakistan, the source said. Workers of the Moscow Dolphinarium consider the project very interesting and are going to take part in it. Animal trainers, hydro engineers and veterinarians will accompany the dolphins to Pakistan, the source said.
Dolphins, which are on the Red Book of endangered species, need special documents for transportation, which are being prepared now, the source said.
Foreign tours are no new experience for the personnel of the dolphinarium and the animals. Earlier, we had organized similar dolphin shows in Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Chile and other countries, the spokesperson said.
Pakistan is planning to open a dolphinarium on the territory of the National Maritime Museum in Karachi. The dolphinarium will seat around 4,000 visitors; its territory is around 370 square meters, and its pool is almost five meters deep.
The performances of the Moscow dolphins in Karachi will continue for around 1.5 months; then the dolphins will move to Lahore. The organizers of the Utrish dolphin tour in Pakistan are expecting the show to start on October 1.
