Baby Toa: Public should consider there may not be a 'Disney ending' for orca - Biologist

From Morning Report, 8:28 am on 21 July 2021

Searches by boat and air have failed to find a pod of orca spotted off Wellington's southern coast.

But conservationists still hope they'll be able to find the pod that abondoned the baby orca Toa at the weekend.

In the meantime the calf is being cared for around the clock in a temporary pool.

Guyon Espiner spoke to marine biologist Karen Stockin from Massey University.
