Killer whales once had a reputation that was even fiercer than their name. But in 1964 the Vancouver Aquarium obtained its first killer whale, Moby Doll, and discovered that they were not the vicious man-eaters of legend. In January 2002, scientists reunited "Springer," a young orphaned whale found in Puget Sound, with her family in BC. At the same time another lone whale turned up on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The people of Nootka Sound adopted "Luna" as their own. Another rescue was planned to return Luna to his family but this time there so no happy ending. In OPERATION ORCA, award-winning author Daniel Francis gives breadth to the political debate of whether to interfere or let nature take its course.
