News in Review Saving a Killer Whale

A young orphan killer whale is discovered in the Pacific ocean, frail and battered. Taken in by American rescuers, she is nursed back to health and for the first time ever an attempt is made to return the whale back to the family pod from which it came – off the coast of Vancouver Island. We follow this wonderful, joyous tale.
