Students 'beluga sit'

Two students on the West Coast have a summer job that will be hard to forget. And a baby beluga hanging around the Codroy Harbour is to thank for it.

"Echo" is a three-year-old whale that's been swimming in Codroy Harbour for three months now.

There's concern that his friendly behaviour, especially around harbour boats could end up hurting him.

The Whale Stewardship Project of Nova Scotia has hired two students to watch over the beluga.
