While fishing around the island of Tonga we discovered a tangled mother humpback whale with a calf. We hopped in the water to help but had a hard time getting close. We were determined to help this whale, hearing an animal of that size crying underwater is the saddest thing I have seen and heard. The final moments of freedom were not captured on film but we successful in removing the buoys and anchor from the mother whale. Its important to contribute to charities purchasing items such as ocean rings to help fund research.
