Stranded Long-Finned Pilot Whale in Tarifa

by firmm Team

On January 5th 2008, a 3m long young Pilot Whale stranded on the beach under rough sea conditions. The helpers who came to rescue the whale (among them our Volunteer Dominique) tried to move the whale back into the water which proved to be impossible because of the strong surf.
Later C.R.E.M.A, the Andalusian organization for stranded marine mammals, came and transported the already dead Pilot Whale to its rescue station, operated for stranded marine mammals in Malaga.
