Baby Belgua Rescued

Two Alaskan fisherman discovered a baby beluga whale in poor condition in Bristol Bay.  The fishermen and marine specialists made heroic efforts to rescue the floundering whale calf, reports ABC News.

The specialists assume the whale was separated from its mother during a fierce storm shortly after its birth.  That's bad news for most mother-separated calves.  But a team from The Alaska SeaLife Center work 24-7 caring for the calf at a cost of about $2,000 a day.  The outlook for the beluga calf looks good.
