Baby Belgua Nala Dies at Vancouver Aquarium


Taking visitors and officials by surprise, the Vancouver Aquarium announced earlier this morning that Nala, their one-year-old baby Beluga whale, died late last night due to an infection.

Nala, the third calf born to Aurora, had been diagnosed with an infection just last week and was undergoing treatment. She was displaying normal behavior with her mother but died suddenly last evening.

Nala celebrated her first birthday on June 7; Vancouver Aquarium staff is deeply saddened by this unexpected loss.
