There was something about the flamingo area at Rancho Palos Verdes' Marineland that attracted four year-old Megan Whitman. Maybe it was the color: pink, her favorite. Or maybe it was the sheer beauty of the birds. Whatever the reason, she and her father ventured over for a closer look. What happened next changed her life.
