Attend the premiere screening of Stranded: A Whale Rescue Tale Sept. 16 at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This documentary includes original footage from the beach and the series of events that followed.

In July 2019, Clearwater Marine Aquarium received a rescue call like none they had ever received before; five pilot whales had stranded on a beach just 14 miles south of its marine life hospital. Every decision from then on was made to ensure the health and safety of the whales, the staff working on them, and the community who came together to support their efforts.
