Dead fin whale washed ashore Belgian beach

A 30-tonne fin whale washed on De Haan beach on the Belgian coast. The 18-metre long whale had been spotted floating in the sea the day before and was towed on the beach in the early hours of Thursday, attracting scientists, veterinarians and crowds of locals. Fin whales are the second largest species of whale and constitute an endangered species.

Veterinary researchers from the universities of Ghent and Liege were at work on the animal, cutting it into pieces to remove it from the beach, carrying out post mortem examinations to learn more about the whale and its causes of death, but also seizing the opportunity to collect samples and learn more about the species.
