The CWRT received a call yesterday from a lobster fisherman off the south of Grand Manan explaining that a humpback whale was trapped in his equipment and seemed to be carrying the gear of other fishermen as well. Because of the bad sea conditions, the fisherman communicated the exact location to the CWRT and left the area.
 
At 8:00am this morning, the sea was calm enough to go rescue the whale named PEZ.

Conservation organizations including the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW - www.ifaw.org) are calling for new actions to end Japan’s “scientific” whaling. 
 
“Killing endangered whales for products that nobody needs is beneath the dignity of a great nation like Japan,” said IFAW Whale Program Manager Patrick Ramage.  “It’s time for Japan to put away the harpoons and join the emerging global consensus for whale conservation in the 21st century.”

Russian government asks IFAW team to assess oil spill

Earlier this week, several ships sank or ran aground during a fierce storm in the Kerch Strait, a narrow waterway linking the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The Volganeft-139, a tanker loaded with nearly 1.3 million gallons of oil, broke in half during the storm. It is estimated that half the freighter’s oil has spilled into the strait and has begun washing up on nearby shorelines. It continues to leak oil. Officials assessing damage have said that could be the worst environmental disaster in the region in years.
