Saving A Whale - Incredible Video

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with New Paradigm Partners LLC EB #1326335

I ran across this on one of my favorite web sites - http://www.boingboing.net - and felt like I had to share it. It's an amazing story of how a small group of people from the Great Whale Conservancy were able to save a young female humpback whale who had become entangled in fishnet. It's got an 8 minute run time, but I can promise you that every second is worth the time. Enjoy and be amazed!

Hi Dick, That was an awesome video and I had goose flesh  feeling the same excitement as the animal was finally freed and then the excitement that it somehow knew to thank them with a wonderful show before saying  goodbye.  You were so right to blog this. And by sharing in something so many of us value, I met a new person. Well done Dick and nice to meet you!

That's a whale of a video.  The Monterey Bay has been full of Humpbacks this year.  They can be seen from the coast.

Awesome, Dick!  I enjoyed watching the video, and was blown away by all the breaches the whale did!

That was amazing.  And, I really thought that it was worth reblogging so that others can see this, too.  Thanks, Dick.

Hi Ron - Thanks for the re-blog. A video like this just makes us feel really good - kind of like a kitten stuck in a tree times 1000.
