Caption

A response team led by the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary working closely with NOAA Fisheries successfully rescued an entangled humpback whale in 2013. Rescuers managed to cut away only 40 feet of trailing line on the first day of the response. But they also attached a satellite tag into the trailing gear allowing them to relocate the animal a few days later. During the second attempt they removed an additional 200 feet of line and two buoys completing the rescue. Photo credit: NOAA. Photo obtained under MMHSRP permit # 932-1905.
