On the 3rd January an adult female beaked whale 17ft long was found stranded dead on the island of Utila, Bay Islands Honduras. Two days later a male calf 11ft long was found slightly further along the coast also dead. They have been provisionally identified as Cuviers Beaked Whales. A necropsy was performed on both animals with tissue samples and blood samples taken. I would be interested in hearing from anyone studying beaked whales so that we can provide you with further information about these strandings. Please contact me at steve(at)utilaecology.org
