Op 30 april werden er bij het rehabilitatiecentrum van het IFAW en de Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) in Bodoland vier nieuwe dieren binnengebracht – pasgeboren loewaks (een civetkattensoort). Ze waren maar een paar dagen oud, en hun ogen waren nog niet eens open toen ze door het Forest Department werden afgeleverd.

Humpback Whale Disentangled in Bay of Fundy

The Campobello Whale Rescue Team (CWRT) successfully disentangled a humpback whale Tuesday evening 50 miles offshore in the Bay of Fundy. The whale was identified by the Center for Coastal Studies as 9 year-old "Hangglide," a frequent visitor to these waters.

Caught up in two lobster trawls, the whale was anchored to the sea floor, unable to free itself. "We're lucky it was a clear day," said Mackie Green, leader of the Campobello Whale Rescue Team. "If there had been bad weather, that whale could have easily drowned before we got to him."
