Science has not yet proven that whales can read, but it did prove that plastic pollution has terrible effects on marine life.

My next comic won’t be so serious I promise! Until then, let’s keep not using plastic!

Entangled Humpback Whale Freed of Gear Off Maui

Wendy Osher – March 7, 2019

An estimated 500 feet of heavy gauge line was removed from an entangled humpback whale off Maui.

The sub-adult animal was freed of the gear by a team of trained responders off of Mākena Beach in South Maui on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Representatives with the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, and US Coast Guard say the animal was entangled in the line through its mouth that formed a bridle. 

“The team made several cuts, removing almost all the line, and greatly increased the animal’s chances of survival,” said Ed Lyman with the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary.  “However, a small amount of gear could not be pulled from the whale’s mouth and thus remains. The recovered gear will be analyzed towards determining its possible origins and trying to reduce entanglement threat in the future.”
