Baby beluga whale born at Georgia Aquarium dies


The Georgia Aquarium announced the death of a female beluga whale calf born on Sunday, May 10  to 20-year-old Maris.

Georgia Aquarium's animal care experts attempted to help the calf gain weight by supplementing her caloric needs with formula.

The aquarium says the calf began showing signs of lethargy, and needed assistance to swim the morning of Friday.

The calf took her last breath in the arms of her caregivers next to her mother just after 7 a.m.
