The British Divers Marine Life Rescue
Large Whale Disentanglement Team
Needs Your Help~
One of the important aspects of cetacean rescue work is having the right tool for the job! 🐋
In October of 2019, the Scottish Entanglement Alliance sponsored a disentanglement and technology training for fishermen and members of: British Divers Marine Life Rescue-Large Whale Disentanglement Team, the Hebridean Whale and Dolphin Trust, Sustainable Seas, the Scottish Creel Fishermen’s Federation, Scottish Marine Animal Strandings Scheme, and the Whale & Dolphin Conservation. 🐋
During this training, it became clear to those who attend to these animals in distress that a new tool needs to be added to BDMLR’s disentanglement kit. 🐋
This new camera allows for 360 degrees of viewing in both photo and video format, which will save valuable time during these high-stress situations.
Having the ability to take one quick underwater video to assess these entanglements and injuries reduces stress to the animal, as well as the team and is safer for all!
The cost of this lifesaving device is only £700 for the entire kit. Please help us show the whales we care!! 🙏🥰
