Humpback Whale Calf Rescued From Gold Coast Shark Net

A humpback whale calf was freed from a shark net off the Gold Coast’s Coolangatta Beach on September 18.

Staff from Sea World joined forces with Queensland Boating and Fisheries to free the marine mammal, in what the sea park described as a “delicate rescue operation”.
