Biology Graduate Students Help Rescue Beached Juvenile Sperm Whale

FAU Whale Rescue


Graduate students, Danielle Ingle, Cameron Luck and Grace Roskar, assisted with a beached juvenile sperm whale near Juno Beach. FAU Harbor Branch reports, "The calf was too young to have been without its mother and no adults were seen offshore. The whale was brought back to FAU Harbor Branch where a necropsy was completed. The goal is to use the data that's collected to help prevent future strandings." 

Stranding response, care, and research of Florida whales is supported by funds from the  Protect Florida Whales specialty license plate.
