whale rescue fuerteventura

Whale rescue Fuerteventura

Rescued a whale trapped in Fuerteventura.

The animal had several wounds and was entangled in a rope that prevented it from moving.

A whale was rescued on Monday in the south of Fuerteventura. The cetacean was entangled in a cape and was released by César Espino, who already in 2016 rescued another whale in a similar situation.

It was a recreational boat of the company Fuerteventura Full Experience that spotted the animal and came to its aid.

The rescue lasted for several hours and according to the statements of César Espino, which has been echoed by Canarias 7, the whale was exhausted and had wounds caused by the ropes, but when detecting its presence, far from fleeing and submerging, he let it approach and remained shallow so that he could help it get rid of the ballast.
