Biologists from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission attempting to disentangle a 4-year-old male right whale (#4057) 40 miles east of Wolf Island, Ga. The whale was entangled through its mouth with over 100 yards of heavy 11/16" diameter fishing rope when it was first found by a UNC Wilmington aerial survey team off Jacksonville, Fla. on Feb. 16, 2014. The public is encouraged to report sightings of dead, injured or entangled whales by calling 1-877-WHALE-HELP (877-942-5343). National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Dolphin & Whale 911 app (http://1.usa.gov/1b1kqfv) can also be used to report marine mammals in trouble.
