Jonathan Bird's Blue World

Sully The Pilot Whale And Cleaning Stations

Season 3, Episode 3 of 9

Sully the Pilot Whale - In 2009, a lone pilot whale was stranded on a Curacao beach. Fortunately, he was rescued by the staff of the Curacao 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 ended up being adopted by Sea World San Diego. Jonathan was part of the story as they learned what was wrong with Sully and what had to be done to save him. Cleaning stations - Jonathan takes a look at cleaning stations, where animals of all kinds go to have parasites and dead skin removed by cleaner fish and shrimp. Everything from sharks and sea turtles to fish and eels sometimes head for the cleaning station. When Jonathan visits, he finds that even he can get cleaned!
