PCCS Disentangles a Humpback Whale

Earlier this month, on August 18, the Marine Animal Entanglement Response (MAER) team at the Provincetown Center for Coastal Studies (PCCS) disentangled a young humpback whale outside Chatham Harbor. The whale was found and reported by tuna fishermen, who then stood by the animal until the responders arrived from Provincetown. When the MAER team arrived on scene, they found Hiatus, a relatively young humpback, firmly anchored in place by an entanglement that consisted of many wraps of rope through its mouth and around the body. The responders, working from a small inflatable boat, used a 20-foot pole and hook-shaped knife to make numerous cuts in the entanglement, eventually freeing the whale from the rope and gear.

The team is well-acquainted with Hiatus: they disentangled this whale at nearly the same spot on July 5, 2012. “This was very unusual and not a pleasant coincidence” said Scott Landry, director of the entanglement response program. “We’d like to think that whales could learn to avoid entanglements, but we know that the issue may be more complicated than that. Hopefully Hiatus will have a bit of time to heal from these events.”
