I watched this last night, its one of the most beautiful, devistating things ive watched in a long time.
What makes it so important. Is the questions raised about the relation ship between humans and wildlife.
"Luna (L98) was a six-year-old orca, separated from his Southern Resident L Pod family when he was about two years old. Resident orcas usually spend
their entire lives with their pod, so Luna's situation was unique. Luna made his home in Nootka Sound, on the west coast of Vancouver Island in
Canada. Luna tragically died on March 10, 2006.
Luna was an incredible little whale. Against all odds, he survived for four years without the guidance of his pod. He spent his time foraging for
salmon, playing, and calling for his family. When he needed companionship, he often turned to people or boats. Many people around Nootka Sound looked
out for him and tried to keep him safe.
Luna brought thousands of people together from around the world with one common goal: to reunite him with his family. "
