Saving Kanaloa | Hana Hou! Magazine

Last year I went to the Big Island to photograph a rare Blainville's Beaked Whale that was found stranded in the waters off Kihei, Maui and brought to the Hawaii Cetacean Rehabilitation Center in Hilo. I watched as doctors, volunteers, and cultural practitioners took care of the whale, feeding him squid smoothies, doing physical therapy, performing traditional Hawaiian medicine, blood draws and ultrasounds. It was truly amazing to get so close to such a unique creature, read about my personal experience in a previous post here: Reminiscence : Kā Maui. Check out the June/ July Issue of Hana Hou! The Hawaiian Airlines Magazine to see the photos and read the first hand account of saving a whale.
