How to save a whale – and what great opportunity for team work

We were all aware of the recent whale standings on the west coast of Tasmania. We thought it would be better for the whales if we learnt how to save them. Thanks to Ranger Tracey-Ann for explaining why whales strand and what you can safely do to help them until staff from Marine Conservation Program can come to help them out. Should you find a stranded whale or dolphin (alive or dead), please call the MCP on the Whale Hotline: 0427 WHALES (0427 942537) for advice and instruction. Time is critical during a rescue attempt, and rapid notification provides the greatest chance of success. The leaders at the Get Outside Leadership Camp learnt new skills and worked well as a team.
