Humpback Disentanglement video

Thanks to Wild in Blue and Rendezvous Diving Adventures for sharing this video with us. We saw it first at the 2014 Marine Mammal Symposium, and it’s amazing how challenging it can be to remove fishing materials and other garbage once it has already started to impact the animals around us.

If you are in British Columbia and see a marine mammal in distress, you can report it to Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s 24-hour hotline at 1-800-465-4336. Learn more about their program here.
