If you read the front page story of the SF Chronicle today -- Thu, Dec
15, 2005 -- you would have read about a female humpback whale who had
become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. She was
weighted down by 100s of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to
stay afloat. She had 100s of yards of line (rope) wrapped around her
body - her tail, her torso, a line tugging in her mouth.
A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside the
Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a
few hours the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad
off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her - a very
dangerous proposition; One slap of the tail could kill a few rescuers.
They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.
When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous
circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and
nudged them, pushed them gently around - she thanked them... some say it
was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. The guy who
cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole
time, and he will never be the same.

Dolphin Answers Whales' SOS Call
By MARTYN McLAUGHLIN
THEY famously attempted to warn mankind of the Earth's impending
destruction in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, only for their
behaviour to be dismissed as playful acrobatics.
But now, solid evidence has emerged of the dolphin's altruistic nature.
In a act of selflessness which has astounded experts and confirmed the
friendly nature of the species, a bottlenose came to the rescue of two
whales stranded on a beach in New Zealand.
The dolphin – nicknamed Moko by local residents, who said it spent much
of its time swimming playfully with beachgoers – helped two pygmy sperm
whales, facing imminent death after becoming stranded on a sandbar, swim
Until Moko's arrival, rescuers feared the mother and calf would have to
be put down to prevent them suffering a prolonged death on Mahia beach,
about 300 miles north-east of Wellington.
Malcolm Smith and his team from the New Zealand Conservation Department
had tried in vain to rescue the animals for an hour-and-a-half. With
their effort faltering, it seemed only a matter of time before the
operation was called off.
"They kept getting disoriented and stranding again," Mr Smith said
yesterday. "They couldn't find their way back past (the sandbar] to the
Just as it seemed all hope was lost, Moko appeared. The dolphin
approached the whales, leading them 200m along the beach before
navigating them out to the open sea.
Mr Smith believes the dolphin heard the whales' distress calls and came
to their aid.
"It was looking like it was going to be a bad outcome for the whales ...
then Moko came along and fixed it," he said. "They had arched their
backs and were calling to one another, but as soon as the dolphin turned
up, they submerged and followed her.
"I don't speak whale and I don't speak dolphin, but there was obviously
something that went on, because the two whales changed from being quite
distressed to following the dolphin willingly and directly along the
beach and straight out to sea."
Another rescuer, Juanita Symes, added: "Moko came flying through the
water and pushed in between us and the whales. She got them to head
toward the hill, where the channel is. It was an amazing experience. The
best day of my life."
Anton van Helden, a marine mammals expert at New Zealand's national
museum, Te Papa Tongarewa, said the reports of Moko's rescue, while
"fantastic", were believable because the dolphins have "a great capacity
for altruistic activities".
He cited evidence of dolphins protecting people lost at sea, and their
playfulness with other animals.
"We've seen bottlenose dolphins getting lifted up on the noses of
humpback whales and flicked out of the water just for fun," he said.
"But it's the first time I've heard of an inter-species refloating
technique. I think that's wonderful."
Since the rescue, Mr Smith said, the whales had not been spotted,
although Moko soon returned to the beach and joined in games with local
"I shouldn't do this, I know we are meant to remain scientific," he
added, "but I actually went into the water with the dolphin and gave it
a pat afterwards, because she really did save the day."
HISTORY OF SAVING LIVES
SINCE the mariners of ancient Greece regarded their presence as a good
omen, dolphins have long enjoyed a reputation among fishermen and
sailors for coming to their aid.
Roman mosaics and coins show images of men playing with dolphins, while
in the 18th century, the Vietnamese navy was assisted by a pod of
dolphins who helped rescue sailors whose boat was sunk by Chinese
In 2004, a group of swimmers who found themselves confronted by a great white shark off the coast
of New Zealand claimed they survived thanks only to a pod of dolphins.
The huge shark came within two metres of the four swimmers, all of whom
were lifeguards, but the dolphins circled them in a tight formation for
around 40 minutes until the group were out of danger. Only when the
dolphins were sure that the shark had disappeared did they open out the
tight circle and allow the lifeguards to swim back to shore.
In 1996, meanwhile, a swimmer in the Red Sea was attacked by a mako
shark, but may have survived thanks to a small pod of dolphins.
The attack occurred minutes after his friends – who had been swimming
with the dolphins – boarded their boat, leaving the man alone in the
water. A rescue vessel was sent to help him after the alert was raised,
and found the dolphins were flanking the badly injured man.
