Young Whale Helps Its Mum – level 2

24-10-2022 15:00

In shallow waters east of Brisbane, a humpback whale was stranded. She was with her calf which tried to help her. It tried to push her out of the shallow water.

Fortunately, the whale became free after 40 minutes. She could be seen swimming off with her calf.

Difficult words: stranded (not able to leave and no one can help), shallow (not deep), calf (the baby of an animal such as a whale).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
