    False killer whale returned to the wild after running around in Yilan (2021/11/25)

    A false killer whale was released back into the wild on Thursday, eight days after it washed up on a beach in Yilan. The animal, which is actually a species of dolphin, was found with weakened and malnourished, although it had no injuries. After eight days of round-the-clock care, it had regained enough strength to be returned to the open sea.

    Volunteers call out to their charge, who they’ve named “Bright One.” After days of looking after the false killer whale, it’s hard to say goodbye.

    Even so, it’s a joyous moment when it’s time for the release. The false killer whale was brought out to sea early Thursday morning. Out of an abundance of caution, the Coast Guard was sent to assist. Marine patrol officers pushed the stretcher to the side of the ship and lowered it slightly, to return the creature to the ocean.

    As if thanking its caretakers, the false killer whale didn’t leave immediately. Instead, it swam in between the two ships that were there to see it off. After taking a turn, it moved out into the depths of the sea.

    The false killer whale measures 3.2 meters long and weighs 350 kilograms. It ran aground last Wednesday along Su’ao Township. It was sent to a rehabilitation center in Keelung City, in a rare live rescue of a stranded marine mammal. More than 400 volunteers took turns monitoring its condition, providing round-the-clock care for eight days, until it grew strong enough to be released.

    Preparations for the release began at 5 in the morning. Around 7:10, the animal came out of the pool. The transport process took about 20 minutes from start to finish. Now it’s on the boat ready to return to the sea.

    The release was no small undertaking, and the volunteers didn’t get much sleep. But to them, it’s all worth it to be able to get their friend home, safe and sound.

    逾400位志工輪番照料 宜蘭擱淺偽虎鯨獲救野放

    上周三中午,宜蘭蘇澳海灘,發現一隻擱淺的活體偽虎鯨,緊急送往基隆八斗子救援站。經過八天,四百多位志工,24小時不眠不休輪班照顧,週四達到野放標準,被帶到外海野放。剛重回大海的偽虎鯨,似乎是為了表達感謝,一度在兩艘野放船之間徘徊,之後瀟灑返回海洋。

    鯨豚協會志工,口中的亮鯨鯨,就是他們為擔架上的偽虎鯨所取的名字。因為照顧了好幾天,大家都有了感情。

    看到牠能野放了,大夥滿心歡喜。一大早亮鯨鯨被帶到海邊,為求慎重,還出動海巡船隻協助。只見海巡人員把擔架推到船邊,微微傾斜,讓牠自己返回大海。

    像是感謝大家對牠這幾天的照顧,進到海洋的偽虎鯨,沒馬上離開,而是在兩艘海巡船隻間徘徊,告別完後,瀟灑游向海的深處。

    這隻偽虎鯨,體長約320公分,體重約350公斤,上周三擱淺在宜蘭蘇澳沙灘,之後送到基隆八斗子救援站,這是國內少見的活體救援,為了時時掌握身體狀況,共出動四百多位志工,天天24小時,不眠不休照料,經過八天的細心休養,達到野放標準。

    [[中華鯨豚協會秘書長 曾鉦琮]]
    “清晨五點就開始準備野放的作業,大約7點10分左右,動物出水池,一直到整個搬運過程大概花費20分鐘左右,到現在順利上船準備要出海野放”

    儘管為了野放,必須起個大早,動用許多資源,但沒人喊累,因為每個人心中都只想著,要讓這隻迷路的嬌客,能健康安全的,回到海裡悠游。
