Some good news in the news today..!
THE lives of dozens of whales, dolphins and seals could be saved around the coast of Scotland each year with the creation of Europe’s first
net-busting rescue team.
Many marine mammals are injured and killed annually as a result of getting caught in fishing nets, ropes or lobster traps. But a squad of
specially-trained volunteers, known as the Large Whale Disentanglement Team (LWDT), is being created to respond to emergencies.
The rescuers train with balloon models like the ones used in Gullane, East Lothian
Similar whale rescue services are already available across the globe in places such as South Africa, Australia, Florida and Hawaii.
The LWDT – who will be based in the north-east of Scotland – will be managed by the British Divers Marine Life Rescue (BDMLR).
Once fully trained, the volunteers will save sea mammals caught in aquatic emergencies in open water anywhere around the UK and even abroad.
Huzzah for the sea mammals..! This is so good to see..
They finally realise that the creatures that inhabit this earth with us, need help too..Hopefully they will see that the help these creatures
sometimes so desperately need, is caused by us. We cannot go on dumping stuff into the oceans without causing massive harm and destruction to the
oceanic environment and those that dwell there.. There has already been massive harm done, and if we keep on this path there will be nothing left in
It will be interesting to see how many sea mammals this new rescue team will save. Even if they only save one, at least they tried and made a
difference to that one animal..
