On January 2, 2017 it was announced that "Granny" was missing and presumed dead. Born in an era when whales were on everyone's menu and her family members were being harpooned, then shot, then captured and put on display, "Granny" (J2) miraculously survived in the west coast waters for over a century as the world - and the world of whales - changed completely. We meet the world's oldest killer whale and explore her past and her family's future.
