Whale detangled off Cabo

Date Published:

Although the whale watching season hasn’t quite started yet, there have several sightings of male whales around Cabo.

 

Last Saturday, a young make humpback was first victim of the season to get caught in fishing nets.

 

The whale was spotted in distress by a tourist boat in the vicinity of Playa Ocho Cascadas.  It was entangled in lobster trap nets with buoys covering its head.

Fortunately, RABEN (the Assistance Network for Entangled Whales) responded very quickly to the call. And, working together with CONANP, PROFEPA and Cabo expeditions, the young whale was successfully freed after two hours.

 

As everybody knows, interaction with fishing gear represents one of the most significant threats to whales. In Cabo and worldwide. So in 2004 Mexico responded to this threat by establishing RABEN.  

 

And if you haven’t heard of them before  - RABEN is an interagency team of people trained to perform rescues of whales entangled in fishing gear. The RABEN network comprises 15 trained teams of disentanglement experts with 180 members along the Mexican Pacific Coast and Baja California Peninsula all equipped with specialized gear to assist in the rescue of entangled whales.
