ORPHAN BABY BELUGA
Passed Away: July 9
His Memory: This hard-luck newborn quickly became an underdog story for animal lovers. The baby beluga whale was found lost and abandoned at only two days old. The Alaska SeaLife Center took the infant in and started bottle-feeding the baby. Even with this extra help, the beluga was unable to make it, but he did manage to show many the importance of protecting wildlife before his passing.
