I had the same reaction. The trust between that beautiful animal and the human(s) is very touching.

That was incredible. If only the species barriers could be bridged. Who knows what knowledge of their life, and of the sea these wonderful creatures could offer us? It's good to remember we all share the planet.

What a beautiful and intelligent creature. Although there are many people who do such heart warming
rescues, we need more to be done throughout the world.

Cool, and I've seen footage of a big heavy rope being removed from a whale shark.

Btw dolphins and porpoises have been known to help humans to shore.
