One day, a baby beluga whale washes up on a gravel beach along the St. Lawrence River, still vigorously alive. This baby whale’s story takes us on a larger journey through the world of the St. Lawrence beluga whales and of the scientists who are working to help them. Through their camaraderie and hard work, and through glimmers of hope, they take unusual steps to try and save her. —AB.
