Another beaked whale has been found on the beach of Tierra Dorada in Fuerteventura. This is the third whale that has been found dead on the coastline of the island in 2019.
A team of five veterinarians have been studying the body of this whale, and samples taken will then be analysed at a laboratory to reach a conclusion to explain the reasons for this death, which should take around one month.
Although this is an individual incident of a stranded whale, there is currently a systematic study of beaked whales that die, not only in Fuerteventura, but across all the Canary Islands.
