    All of the remarks are wonderful but what I want to know is, why did she die? She wasn’t just left on the sandbar to decompose was she? Don’t/didn’t scientists/marine biologists want to find out why she died? Tissue samples, blood samples??

    I read at the time that a sperm whale was actually breached in the Gulf, after over 240 million gallons of oil and millions of pounds of Corexit were dispersed in the waters. This whale in addition to hundreds of dead dolphins, turtles, now fish showing up with grotesque sores.

    thanks, I’d like to know.
