In 2009, a lone pilot whale was stranded on a Curaçao beach. Fortunately, he was rescued by the staff of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium. They named him Sully and spent months nursing him back to health. After being successfully rehabilitated, Sully refused to go back to the wild and was adopted by Sea World San Diego. Jonathan learns what was wrong with Sully and what had to be done to save him.
