When I was in second grade, I was OBSESSED with whales. Not kidding. I drew whales, I watched TV shows about whales, I listened to whale noises on CD (ever wonder who bought those 'Song of the Humpback' albums? Yeah, that was me). And why? Duh: because on top of being the most amazing, intelligent, gorgeous animals ever, their lifeguarding skills are top notch! According to The Sun , a beluga whale (yes, like the Raffi song) literally saved a woman incapacitated and drowning during an aquarium diving contest in China. Now, 1) I have no idea what would motivate someone to submerge themselves in dangerous arctic temperatures, and 2) I'm never thrilled about animals in captivity. Still, I hope these instances of animal kindness to humans will inspire more human kindness towards animals (especially whales 'cause they're just so darn cute!).
Or, get 'Baby Beluga' stuck in your head like I did . . .
