During a family vacation on the St. Lawrence River in Canada, teenagers saw how a newborn beluga was washed ashore.
15-year-old Nicholas Billion told how he and his younger brothers managed to save the animal.
Water was poured every five minutes so that the animal would not dry out.
The Quebec family immediately called rescuers and continued to take care of the baby until specialists arrived.
Rescuers returned the animal to the water.
The only hope is that the baby will find his mother or another beluga will feed him.
Belugas feed and take care of their offspring for two years. Without maternal support, the baby simply will not be able to survive.
Once upon a time, thousands of belugas lived in the St. Lawrence River. Now their population has decreased to 900. And the reason for everything is the pollution of the reservoir.
Anyway, the rescued beluga whale now has a chance to survive. And all thanks to the efforts of caring boys.
