How we Could Have Saved Luna, the Whale that Died in a Tradgic Accedent
How Luna Died
The Prevention of the Death
I feel that it was the Mowachant/Muchalant tribe fault for the death of Luna. They interfered with capture of Luna to reunite him with his family(L-pod). He could be with them away from the danger of boats and get his social needs to live with out the dangers of people. This leads to what would be the perfect plan to save him.
My plan would be to capture him into a net pen then bring him to where his pod revisits every summer. Then there are two ways it could play out. One way it could go is that Luna will be reunited with his family and live happily ever after. On the other hand , there is a possibility for Luna to be unwelcome into the pod. If this were to happen then Luna would be put back into Nookta Sound with a watch team to watch him 24/7.
