The feel good video of the day. Members from The Great Whale Conservancy found a humpback whale entangled in a fishing net and spent the next hour trying to save it, after a long struggle with cutting the net the whale got free and showed them a magnificent show of gratitude. Imagine the emotions running through the whale and the people on-board that little boat. Simply awesome!
