According to Russian Orcas, two of the recently captured orcas now belong to Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, a new theme park near Hong Kong, China. It is also being reported that the orcas have already arrived in China. 

The new park is set to open before January 31st. From the little information I could find, it appears they will also be housing Chinese white dolphins, belugas, a whale shark (they wish to eventually acquire 10), and pantropical spotted dolphins.

    Hey, I know this is an older post, but where did those orcas ever end up? To my knowledge, Chimelong doesn’t have orcas.
