A Not So Sad Story

Recently all the talk in the world lately has been about ISIS and it being pushed back, or about it gaining ground but thats not what I'm going to talk about today. Today I'm going to be talking about a gray whale that swam 14,000 miles from Russia to Mexico. Not only did this break the world record of 10,190 mile trip of a different gray whale. Although its good to see whales alive and well theres a sad part to this story as well but I'll leave it up to you to decide if its sad or not. The whales name is Varvara and was originally thought to be a western whale, the western whale is an endangered species. About 150 are estimated to still be alive today, however with the discovery of were Varvara may have originated from its thought that some of the western whales tracked might actually be eastern gray whales.
Heres the link if you want to see the story:
