Howie became entangled in fishing line which cut a notch at the base of his dorsal fin, making re-entanglement a likely occurrence. It was suggested by the Queensland Department of Environment for Howie to come to Sea World to recover and due to his injuries to remain here. Howie is now a very visible example of the effect of ghost netting and the importance of removing all fishing gear when you have finished.

RAAF was found as a young calf lying on his side, badly sunburnt, stranded on the high tide mark on a beach in the Royal Australian Armed Forces Base at Evan’s Heads, NSW. After many weeks of dedicated care RAAF recovered from his injuries. Due to his age on arrival he was not able to be released as he would not have been able to fend for himself in the wild.
Rescue Date: May 2007
Nudge was found in the shallows at Nudgee Beach, with monofilament fishing line entangled all around his tail fluke and a number of old wounds including a large stingray barb which was later found to be imbedded on his left hand side. Nudge was found at an age where he would still be nursing from his mother and heavily reliant upon her for survival. This meant that he had not developed the necessary skills to survive out in the ocean.
