WGN News in Chicago talked with one of the marine mammal experts who responded to Alaska to help care for a baby beluga whale found stranded on the shores of Cook Inlet in late September.

Friday, the Center announced on social media that the whale would be named "Tyonek."

In October, Channel 2's Mike Ross spoke with the Alaska SeaLife Center about the whale. See that report here.
