Und was will der Wal?

Some of the best journalism poses questions that a) you wouldn’t have thought you were that interested in and at the same time b) you have an intuitive answer to, only to then be thrown into a literal sea of pros and cons, of different perspectives, that leave you without an answer, but with a greater understanding for the complexity of the world. Johannes Böhme’s German article about a stranded orca that now lives in a zoo is a great example of this. No surprise it was recently awarded the Deutsche Reporter:innenpreis.
