Bklink: Coney Aquarium Beluga Whale Dead in Atlanta

We're behind the curve on this, yet, want to note this information: "A beluga whale that once delighted visitors to Brooklyn's Coney Island died early Saturday at an aquarium in Georgia. The female whale, named Marina, died about 2 a.m. at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, said Jeff Swanagan, the aquarium's president and executive director. She had recently fallen ill. 'She was showing increased disorientation in her swimming behavior. Then she stopped swimming and stopped breathing,' he said.--AP/Newsday via Envirolink
