Dear April, Thank you so mu…
Dear April,

Thank you so much for your contribution toward rescuing Digit, the Sperm Whale in Dominica currently entangled in a fishing line. She has been carrying this rope around with her for months now, cutting in to her tail and (we think) causing her to not feed as effectively as she needs to.

Rescues should be fast, but sometimes these things move slowly; we have lined up a rescue team and are seeking permission from the Fisheries department of the government of Dominica. The goal is for a team to be dispatched when Digit is next seen.

Your contribution means the world to us, a great encouragement to try this disentanglement. The best outcome would be if we can successfully cut Digit free *and* raise the issue locally to get a rescue team trained for future whale entanglements. Unfortunately this is a problem that is not going away. There is a chance that we won’t be able to attempt the rescue at all, if either we do not get permission or if Digit does not show up. If this is the case, we’d like to put the money towards training and equipping a local rescue team so that in the future the effort is not so long in coming. If you are okay with that, we thank you. If not, please let me know (Ted Cheeseman – and we can arrange a refund of your contribution if Digit’s rescue does not take place.

Warm regards and whales forever,
