This show originally aired May 24, 2011. We're reposting it here, along with Chion Wolf's photos, because of the death last week of the 33-year-old beluga whale Naku.
We’re On the Road again! Today we take you to Mystic Aquarium in Stonington, Connecticut. We’ll explore the fascinating lives of whales, penguins, sharks, seals, sea lions—all the wonders of the undersea world. We’ll talk to scientists, trainers, educators, and explorers—and a few marine mammals will talk to us (and you)! And don't miss Chion Wolf's amazing photographs of our day at the Aquarium!
This web-exclusive audio is an extended edition of the show nearly two minutes longer than the version that aired on WNPR.
