I had a great experience last Saturday, I had never imagined that I wauld have involved in such a great moment. It started when a sperm whale was washed ashore is Pakis Jaya beach, Karawang, West Java On Last Wednesday. The 12-meter whale was in stuck in the swallow water. A lot of people from my kampoong and nearby areas came to see the beached whale. My friends and I came, too.
On Thursday, rescuers from Jakarta Animal Aid Network, navy divers and many voluenters tried to lead the whael to the sea. However, due to many boats packed with spectator on the sea which bloked its way. The whale failed return tand to the open sea and was washed back to the beach. By then the number of the spectator increased. Some of them even climbed on the whael’s back and posed and picture causing some scratches and bruisses on its delicate skin. I felt pity to that poor animal.
On Saturday, again the rescuers tried to save this 2 tone creatur this time, they used 10 boats to pull the whale. I was lucky because my father who was one of the volunteers allowed me to take part in the operation . together with other volunteers, I pushed the wale to the deeper sea, late on that day. It refloated and spouted water from head before swimming to the ocean.
