Trapped shark rescued after 24 hour effort to keep it wet and unharmed (Video)

A 20-foot Orca was found stranded on rocks on Prince of Wales Island in Alaska. Boaters spotted the whale trapped in a crevice of rock almost five feet above the tideline and alerted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The crew used seawater pumps to keep the whale wet and birds away. A TikTok user shared a video of the rescue operation, showing the crew pouring water buckets on the orca.

 

“We were working on getting a hose and pump to work,” the TikTok user said in the video. “In the meantime, we used buckets to keep the orca wet.” Thankfully, the whale became more lively after the crew put water on them.

The tide made it possible for the orca to return to the ocean six hours after its initial sighting. After it arrived, the seawater rose sufficiently high to allow the whale’s release from the rocks for it to swim off.

CNN spokesperson Julie Fair said that NOAA will examine the photos and videos from the rescue in order to determine whether the whale sustained injuries. It is not clear what caused the beaching. An 8.2-magnitude earthquake struck the coast of southwestern Alaska less than a day prior to the beaching. But NOAA believes that the earthquake did not cause the orca’s stranding.

The rescue of the Orca is a reminder of the importance of protecting marine life and the environment. Whales and other marine animals are often threatened by human activities such as pollution, overfishing, and climate change. It is crucial that we take steps to reduce our impact on the oceans and protect these magnificent creatures.

NOAA and other organizations are working to protect marine life and the environment through research, conservation, and education. By supporting these efforts, we can help ensure that whales and other marine animals continue to thrive in our oceans for generations to come.
