An endangered beluga (white whale) that lives mainly in the cold Arctic waters has been discovered in the Seine River in France.



According to foreign media such as the BBC and Reuters on the 4th local time, the beluga was first spotted on the Seine on the 2nd and has been confirmed to be staying near the sluice gate of Bernon, 70 km northwest of Paris, the capital city.



It is known that the solitary beluga sometimes migrates south, but French authorities have not yet figured out what led the beluga to reach the Seine River, far away from its habitat.



French rescue teams are currently flying drones over the Seine to monitor the condition of the beluga.



Rescue teams are trying to guide the beluga to the Seine estuary, trying to figure out a way to get them back to sea, but it's not easy.



However, he said he is not considering taking the beluga out of the water for rescue.



Ramya Esemrari, president of the French marine environment group Sea Shepherd, said in an interview, "What we need to do next is to help beluga eat and go to sea together."



French authorities are concerned about the beluga's health as the beluga suffers from a skin disease and is currently underweight, AFP news agency said.



Meanwhile, in May, a killer whale that was swimming in the Seine River in France was also found dead after suffering from a disease.
