How Does NOAA Disentangle Whales?

A specialized team of NOAA marine mammal experts and partners are trained to safely disentangle large whales, using guidelines that minimize risk to the animals and rescuers. This also maximizes the potential for success. Unlike the movies, real rescuers do not enter the water to disentangle whales. This is too dangerous for both the rescuer and the whale.
