A team of 40 individuals worked long and hard to bring a fin whale back into deeper waters after it was found struggling in the shallow beaches of Isla Contoy in Mexico. Divers work to safely secure ropes around the massive whale while head park ranger Captain Henry Medaron supervised from the ship Columba until the whale was ready to be towed out to much deeper water. This was a rescue well done!
