Marine Rescue NSW assists with whale disentanglement off Mid North Coast

Marine Rescue NSW vessel Crowdy Harrington 30 has played the role of mothership during an operation to free an entangled whale off Perpendicular Point near Camden Head on the Mid North Coast this morning.

Marine Rescue NSW Acting Northern Zone Commander John Murray said a volunteer crew on board CB 30 was deployed to assist the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Whale Disentanglement team just after 8am last Sunday.

“CB 30 carried NPWS personnel, gear and provided on-water assistance for the operation.

“The humpback whale was successfully freed just before 11am this morning.

“Marine Rescue NSW crews train with NPWS across the state for these situations and today’s result is a wonderful outcome,” Acting Northern Zone Commander Murray said.

Marine Rescue NSW is a volunteer based not-for-profit professional organisation dedicated to keeping boaters safe on the water and supporting local communities.
