Love Wells. Were this morning is Scotland entry. Scott Landry works for the Center for Marine Studies and he's in charge of the division marine animal entanglement response in other words. Whales Seals. Turtles they get stuck in fishing gear. Morning Scotland. We how you disppointing.

There was a there was a whale that was stopped the say that well, me and my came, yeah, me and Maria and Bob. To us about it I mean, we felt good when I heard about it I felt good that you did such a great job. Tell us about yeah. We got a report on Monday of a little humpback whale that was acting strangely south of Jones beach just outside the Harbor New York City. And Slow and behold the whale was entangled. It had very heavy fishing gear wrapped around the base of its tail. And, that fishing gear was anchored on the sea floor. So it's sort of imagine and put yourself in the in the flukes of that whale, it's as if someone had tied an anchor chain to your ankle and only gave you enough chain so that you could just reach your knows about the surface of the water. Wow. It wasn't a really bad position is you have to worry about high type. Every high tide whale would've been stressed out. I heard it took you days to rescue the poor well. Now, it's not us we worked together with. Their New York City are little institutions center coastal studies from Cape Cod. We were flown down there by pilots from turtles to volunteer pilots that really helped us out but also unusual in this case not only did a large noah ship help us out but also the Army Corps of Engineers, and the US coastguard. In other words, it takes a lot of people to get an animal out of the particular like this. That is wonderful. Did Not tell me how often how many of these things you do a year? We might disentangle anywhere from ten to twenty. It changes from year to year this. Here's been a relatively quiet, your because of the pandemic, there are less people out in the water and therefore less people to report entangled whales to us. Funds Institution.

But we tried to be as helpful to Wales wherever we can, and in this case, we have to essentially divide our team in two. So keep half the team here at home so we can deal with an entangled whale here. But then sent half the team to wherever it is for example York. and. So it's a bit of a stressful time to to split up the team like that. But in this case, really worked out despite having one of the more difficult. Disentanglement we've dealt with and decades. Now we know you do well and you told me before when we were talking you you Charles what other kinds of animals We we actually have our hands full with whales and Sea Turtle.
