A SeaWorld® San Diego trainer feeds JJ the grey whale. JJ was rescued, near death, from a beach in Marina Del Rey. SeaWorld cared for JJ for the next 15 months, creating a baby grey whale milk formula that was critical to nursing her back to health. After gaining nearly 20,000 pounds and growing to more than 30 feet in length, JJ was released back to the ocean off the California coast. During his care at SeaWorld, millions of park visitors were able to see and learn more about this amazing animal.
