In recognition of National Wildlife Day last Sunday, Sept. 4, SeaWorld San Diego’s Rescue Team shared the story of J.J., the orphaned gray whale calf that was found dehydrated, hypoglycemic and comatose off the coast of California on Jan. 10, 1997.

Watch for more on J.J's rescue, the first of it's kind.

Thanks to years of experience working with stranded animals, SeaWorld's team of experts were able to care for J.J. 

J.J. was returned to her ocean home nearly 20 years ago but her inspirational success story lives on with the experts involved in her rescue and the rest of the SeaWorld San Diego team.
