Gold Coast whale rescuer escapes fine

Recommended Posts

Quote

A Gold Coast man who escaped a hefty fine for freeing a baby whale calf from shark netting has pledged to give tens of thousands in crowdfunding donations to a marine conservation group.

It is illegal in Queensland to interfere with equipment used for shark control, with a possible fine of up to $26,900 for doing so.

But an investigation by the Department of Fisheries cleared him of any serious breaches.

He has been handed two fisheries infringement notices but will not receive a monetary fine.
