The broken oil pipeline off the coast of Huntington Beach is an environmental catastrophe that has killed fish, contaminated wetlands, and left nearby birds covered in oil. Now wildlife experts are rescuing sick and injured animals, one by one.

Plus, a nonprofit organization called the Sidewalk Project supplies unhoused people with Narcan, clean syringes, condoms, pipes, and marijuana. And a new exhibition honors the history of the museum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale.
