Marine mammal strandings are, unfortunately, more common than they may seem to be. Time and again, we hear about whales and dolphins that fell victim to this peculiar phenomenon – washed up on the shore, lying on land and unable to get back into the water on their own. The causes for strandings are numerous and difficult to determine, but they have been proven in, many cases, to be connected with human activity. When a marine mammal becomes stranded, however, most often it is exclusively human intervention that can save the animal’s life – and, luckily, there is usually a large number of people willing to team up and help the creatures in need!

The fantastic rescue of a humpback whale was recently organized on a beach in Punta Carnero in Ecuador. The unbelievable footage shows a group of people next to the massive animal, working tirelessly to push the whale back into the water. As organization C’est assez reports, the rescue took 11 hours – the kind people gathered in the water did everything that was in their power to save the whale’s life. And, finally, they succeeded! Thanks to the group effort, the animal, at last, got back into the sea – all because of the inspiring and priceless help of the rescuers!

If you ever come across a marine animal in need of help, please contact a professional before stepping in to help! Here are a few hotlines you can call for assistance.

This is nice to see. This is very different from the videos showing self-absorbed people killing something while getting selfies.

The Japanese, Norwegians and Faroe Islanders should see this rescue and be ashamed of themselves.

I agree, but they celebrate brutality in their cultures\' cults of death. They have lost any claim to mercy.
