Argentinian killer whale researcher Roberto Bubas has published a proposal to rehabilitate and possibly release 24-year-old male Kshamenk. Kshamenk had been forced to strand in September 1992 and has been on his own at Mundo Marino in Buenos Aires since female Belen passed away in February 2000. Now it's up to the Argentinian government whether this proposal will be accepted.
