Ocean Whales Attempt a Beachhead on Bali's Nusa Dua

(8/14/2010)

A male whale measuring 2.8 meters in length was found dead on the shores of the Nusa Dua complex on Tuesday, August 10, 2010.

The remains of the decaying whale washed ashore near the Hotel Inna Putri Bali.

Pariama Hutasoit from the Nusa Dua Reef Foundation who joined a team that included members of the veterinary faculty of Bali's Udayana University and representatives of the Bali Nature Conservation Group (KSDA) confirmed that the whale was eventually buried within the Bali Tourism Development Corporation grounds at Nusa Dua.

Hutasoit also confirmed that two days earlier, on Sunday, August 8, 2010, another whale washed ashore near the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Nusa Dua. That animal was still alive and was successfully coaxed back into the open sea.

A researcher from the KSDA estimates the dead whale had died three to four days earlier before washing ashore at Nusa Dua, ruling out the possibility that it was the same whale that was re-launched into the sea at the Grand Hyatt two days earlier.

The dead whale was black in color, relatively small in size and with a rounded head

In May 2010, four whales washed ashore in Nusa Dua with one of the mammals dying before rescuers could push it back into the ocean. A day later, another dead whaled grounded at Nusa Dua.

Scientist are uncertain what killed the whales or is causing them to congregate on Bali's southernmost peninsula.
