Wonderful result. I agree with David, but perhaps it is a bit early to go to bed [6.30pm]

Thanks Cher. I find this story both happy and sad at the same time. There is a huge amount of plastic in the ocean, and it is harming wildlife in large numbers. It has to be addressed. Project Kaisei has begun research into how to get it out of the ocean. I'd also like to see mayors and city officials working hard on efforts to reduce the amount of plastic and other waste entering waterways. There has been a discussion about this in the Oceana group on Care2 over the past year or so. I am glad that the whale was disentangled in this case!
