Fur seal rescue in pictures

Northland orca expert and Whale-Rescue.org member Ingrid Visser has helped rescue a fur seal with a plastic strap stuck around its neck. The rescue unfolded at Punta Norte on Argentina's Peninsula Valdés, where Dr Visser had been studying orca which deliberately beach themselves to prey on seals. The strap had already cut deep into the seal's neck and would eventually have proved fatal.
