  1. A lot of human beings believe every situation revolves around them and psychologically project their own emotions and fears onto wildlife. There was probably far more complicated communication going on between the whales and sharks as its stated in another article “The divers were snorkeling near sleeping mother whales and their calves.” Whales push their calves up to the surface to breath periodically and the whale probably mistook the diver for her calf. As far as anyone knows while the whale was distracted by the diver, the tiger sharks moved in for the kill on her real calf.

    This woman was harassing calving whales but in her egotistical mind it was all about her being “saved”.

    The Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 states in part;

    * Interacting with wild marine mammals should not be attempted, and viewing marine mammals must be conducted in a manner that does not harass the animals.
    *
    * Do not engage in activities that involve closely approaching, interacting, or attempting to interact with whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, or sea lions in the wild. This includes attempting to swim with, pet, touch, or elicit a reaction from the animals.

    * Observe wild dolphins, porpoises, and seals from safe distances of at least 50 yards (150 feet) by land or sea
    *
    * Observe large whales from a safe distance of at least 100 yards (300 feet) by land or sea
    *
    * Observe whales, dolphins, porpoises, and seals from a safe distance of at least 333 yards (1,000) feet by air
    *
    * Use binoculars or telephoto lenses for a better view of the animals
    *
    * Limit overall viewing time to no more than 30 minutes
    *
    * Avoid circling or entrapping marine mammals between watercraft, or watercraft and shore
    *
    * Avoid abrupt movements or loud noises around marine mammals
    *
    * Avoid separating mother/calf pairs
    *
    * Move away cautiously if behaviors are observed that indicate the animal is stressed
    *
    * Avoid touching or swimming with wild marine mammals, even if they approach you

    But I guess this lady thought none of these rules apply to her because she’s “special”.

  2. here we see intelligent – altruistic behaviour . The two whales cooperated to save this diver.

    And we still have the temerity to think we are the most advance life form on the planet.

  3. Why would anyone sit with their legs hanging in the water with a shark nearby? also, there must have been someone else in the water recording, right? my common sense says hmmmmmmm.??.

  4. But todays shipping with all large propelling ships makes the Noise environment for this creatures very noisy in the Sea.
    To little is spoken about the sound environment in the Sea.

  5. How amazing are the creatures on this planet, intelligent, compassionate and caring, they have a thought process and emotions. We need to start appreciating what we have before we lose them all, they aren’t dump worthless life forms

  6. Can’t you just stop relaying this kind of crap?
    There is absolutely no shark in the video then why are you saying the girl’s been rescued from one???
    Medias really make me sicker and sicker.
    Sharks are not human killers, we are in 2018, you should know that.
    And except if you’re a whale, I doubt you know why this gorgeous one did what she did.
    Oh and one last thing, we do NOT touch them beautiful sea creatures, NEVER.

  7. I guess we’ll thank the whale by getting some “Scientific Research” aka WHALING SHIP plunging an explosive tipped harpoon into his body… Dragging his still living body onto the ship… And cut him to pieces……
