Whale rescue at Crowdy Bay

A juvenile humpback whale was rescued on Tuesday afternoon off Indian Head, south of Port Macquarie. The whale had become tangled in rope from fishing traps.

Andy Marshall from the National Parks and Wildlife Service said a Harrington couple was bushwalking and noticed splashing and buoys floating in the ocean about 300m offshore from Indian Head in the Crowdy Bay National Park.
