Animal rights activists have long accused humans of being the enemy of the animal kingdom and while this is true around the world, some would argue especially so along the Amazon basin, every so often a heartwarming story emerges!

A baby humpback whale was saved by a group of good hearted humans in Rio de Janerio, Brazil after becoming stranded on a beach.

Volunteers and emergency services had to assist the baby whale when it became apparent that the animal needed help.

The baby humpback was stranded on a popular beach in the coastal resort of Arraial do Cab.

Whaly good rescue efforts by all involved!😉
