Description - Mysteries in Our National Parks: Out of the Deep by Gloria Skurzynski
A baby whale is the latest mammal stranded on the beaches of Acadia National Park. When the Landons run to get help, they don't notice Bindy Callister slip away. When they track her down, she's acting strange--she knows the strandings are no accident. She even knows those responsible. But she's too scared to tell. Time is running out; and now the kids too are in real danger--unless Bindy talks!
