Two sperm whales saved from stranding


This 2 April 2016 video from Breskens in Zeeland province in the Netherlands shows a sperm whale swimming and blowing.

Translated from RTL TV in the Netherlands today:

Two sperm whales have been successfully returned to sea this morning, after they had been seen in the Westerschelde estuary between Vlissingen and Breskens.

Volunteers of the lifeboat organisation KNRM and Rijkswaterstaat with their boats made a funnel on the water so that the sperm whales could only swim towards the sea. “The operation was successful. The sperm whales are off Cadzand,” said a spokesperson for Rijkswaterstaat.
