People saved a big whale - level 2, A12

An 8-metre-long whale was trying to free herself after getting trapped in a shark net near Australia.

Animal rescuers had the difficult task. They had to cut the nets which were around her head.

When they first came to the whale, she dived to avoid them but they finally managed to free her.

Two other whales were waiting for her and rescuers say all three will continue their journey together.


Interesting words: trapped (caught), task (job), avoid (stay away from somebody).
