Beautiful, but sad in a way. If only more people would think of what we are doing to the environment, and the creatures we share this world with, Maybe we wouldn't have to be thankful for just saving one whale.

Thank you for this video, It made me cry, but it also made me think.

Amazing!!! and it really gives you that little bit of faith back that us humans do care about things around us,

Its so nice to see such a positive moment caught on tape, And those people who worked with out giving up to allow the beautiful creature to be set free,

and yep it make me all teary eyed as well, We see so many horror stories about creatures of this earth its just nice to see a happy one with a great ending,

Thank you for sharing this video with us,

Why did this make my eyes all wet?
I hope people understand the danger in trying to assist any animal in distress. A small animal can seriously injure a person who is trying to help.
If you should encounter an animal in distress please get professional help if available. If not, be sure to back away if your presence begins to aggravate the animal in any way.
An injured animal is even harder to try to help as even family pets have been know to bite when under such stress.

The show at the end was exhilaration at being free and alive.
Which lead me to ask: when was the last time I felt that good?
What kind of "nets" do we have on us that keep us from feeling that way?

That was a beautiful video - we see humanity at it's finest and nature in a grand display.
But reflecting on humanity it pointed out something many of us are sorely lacking these days - happiness at simply being alive.

I don't mean to be debbie downer here... Just trying to look at the reality of the situation and the ramifications of the destructive acts we do to these animals:

Was that animal thanking them? or doing behavior to try to find it's family/pod after likely being left behind because it was trapped/disabled?

Sounding and hitting it's fluke like that may have been a way of trying to call to it's family or other animals because it's now lost and alone.

Amazing and the nations that still persist in hunting these incredible creatures should watch this.

Not a downer at all, its a good reality thought, I do think that the whale was expressing in order to find its family ect,

But to be free again hopefully gives it the best shot at finding them again, Being in a net a dying that way would be far more unnatural, Passing in the ocean if that was to happen is the right way,

I hope that it does go on to live its life in the sea,

Asktheamimal: I fully get what you are saying as well, Its dangerous to intervene, But goodness i would have put myself at risk to help too, I have many a time been bitten trying to save a creature but i would do it all over again,

but again Yes you have to know when your helping and when you are making a situation worse,

Sounds silly and many animal lovers will get it but i would put my self in danger fully for my own pet, My dog was almost killed when he managed to chomp through his car harness and open the car door while traveling down a motor way, Before thinking I threw of my seat belt and jumped in the back to grab him almost falling out to the traffic too,

I was shook up and so was my dog but i would do it all over again to save him,

ahh silly humans we are
But I guess i would do it for anyone, Animal or human without thinking,

If the animal is in distress and sees me as a threat, then I will not try to save the animal. I might just end up being bitten or scratched. But if the animal is ok being helped and its life is in danger, then I will help it especially if time is of the essence just like in the video above.

This video needs to be seen more and more!

If we can do this to whales, sure as heck we can do it to every human on this planet!

It makes you keenly aware that since modern mans arrival, the world has steadily been degraded. Without man there would have been ballance in the ecology. But since man's arrival foreign species have been introduced, species decimated, and entire eco-systems destroyed. Why? for at first, sustenance, then for greed ultimatly. Aboriginals had learned over generations and generations how to live in ballance, yet we called then savages and sought to exterminate them. And what were they replaced with? Ever evolving and ever faster methods of destruction, called harvest, and then industrial farming, and we even dared to change genetics.......... We have had our chance, and we have wasted it, man is no match for the wisdom of mother nature.

Nature always seems to suffer as a result of our actions. Planet earth would be much better off without us.
