Interesting #wildlife  
This is interesting. "Robert Pitman, a marine ecologist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), witnessed one of these interventions during a research expedition in Antarctica in 2009. After a pack of killer whales washed a Weddell seal from an ice floe and went in for the kill, a pair of humpbacks swam to the scene. One of the giants flipped onto its back and lifted the seal onto its enormous belly. As the killer whales approached, the humpback arched itself upwards, creating an artificial island for the pinniped prey. The whale gently nudged the seal back onto its chest when it started to slip into the water again. "I was shocked," Pitman told Science Magazine. "It looked like they were trying to protect the seal."

Pitman put out a call to colleagues to ask if anyone else had observed such perplexing behaviour. To his surprise, dozens of other scientists and naturalists had witnessed similar events.

The results of this survey were published recently in Marine Mammal Science. Pitman and his co-authors recorded 115 observations of humpbacks interacting with killer whales (also known as orcas) – and 38 of these saw killer whales chased down and hampered during a predation attempt. The humpbacks usually acted in groups, resembling the kind of mobbing behaviour seen in birds when trying to drive off a predator. In 89% of these cases, the killer whales were targeting a species other than humpback whales. In other words, when humpback whales do get involved in a scuffle with orcas, it's usually to save a creature that is not a humpback whale."
