Watch: rescue of mother and baby whale

Queensland Boating and Fisheries Department has been filmed rescuing a humpback whale and her calf off the Gold Coast, in Australia.

Sea World Director of Marine Sciences, Trevor Long, commented on the situation:
“This was a delicate rescue operation with both animals heavily entangled with the mother holding the calf up so it could breathe. Thankfully both animals were released successfully.”
