The internet is hailing a group of fishermen from Kerala for their act of kindness. The fishermen had reportedly released an endangered Whaleshark back into the ocean and the gesture is winning the internet.
In a video shared on Twitter, a group of men can be seen untangling the ropes around the huge mammal and then pushing the same back into the water.
For the unknown, Whalesharks are found in abundance along the shores of Gujarat and are hunted for a good sum of money attached to the same. To stop the execution of the mamma, the government has launched The Whale Shark Conservation Project to generate baseline data on the whale shark to aid its long-term conservation in India.
So glad to see the effort made to help the creature live….— Meghna Girish (@megirish2001) January 29, 2020
The kind gesture from the fisherman has got netizens’ attention who hailed them for the same. While some called the fishermen heroes and true warriors of the environment, some expressed concern about how the shark was going to survive after the ropes tied on its fins.
Fabulous! They are the true keepers of our planet!— Pervin Sanghvi (@pervinsanghvi) January 28, 2020
Wish they had the same sensitivity for all fish, regardless of the size.— THE ROCK ?? (@varunkukreja131) January 29, 2020
Every fish feels the same pain.
