DFO looking into endangered Orca found in Sechelt

The Pacific Marine Mammal Coordinator with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada is praising the Sunshine Coast for a quick response surrounding a whale that died on the shores of Sechelt.

Paul Cotrell says they don’t always get the carcass in a fresh state to be able to conduct a necropsy.

Cotrell says the animal was identified as J-34, a member of the endangered southern resident population. He says the skeleton will be going to the Sechelt First Nation for a social ceremonial display.
