With the support of the Participatory Environmental Monitoring Committee, Profepa staff located the female gray whale in an advanced state of decomposition.
In response to citizen reports, the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (Profepa) attended to the stranding of a whale on the shores of Ejido Valle Tranquilo, El Rosario municipality, in Baja California.
With the support of the Participatory Environmental Monitoring Committee, Profepa staff located the female specimen of the gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus), in the adult stage and in an advanced state of decomposition.
The whale showed no evidence of bruising, lacerations or injuries that could suggest the reason for its death, nor were there any fishing gear marks that could be linked to anthropogenic activities.
The federal inspectors determined – based on the Protocol of Care for Strandings of Marine Mammals – to leave the carcass of the whale in the site since it did not represent discomfort or risks to public health, thereby also allowing the degradation processes to take place natural.
On the other hand, in the same Baja California town, the report of the finding of a lifeless specimen of a female killer whale (Orcinus orca) was received.
Upon physical examination, scratches were observed on the dorsal part of the animal, superficially at the level of the dorsal fin, although it was not possible to identify the cause of death.
Since the organism did not yet show signs of decomposition, it was suggested that his death could have occurred hours before his stranding.
The Profepa inspectors requested the support of veterinary and scientific personnel from the Civil Association “Research and Conservation of Marine Mammals of Ensenada”, as well as from the Faculty of Marine Sciences and the Institute of Oceanological Research of the Autonomous University of Baja California ( UABC), to transfer the killer whale to a freezer, in order to perform the corresponding autopsy and to determine the probable causes of its death.
In a third case, federal inspectors addressed the report of the finding of a California sea lion (Zalophus californianus), juvenile at Playa Hermosa in Ensenada.
The specimen was alive and in optimal health conditions, but with signs of stress due to the presence of the approaching tourists, so it was determined to relocate it to another marine area so that it could continue resting in its environment.
Similarly, Profepa attended to the report of a sea elephant stranded in Baja California but could not be located, so it is presumed that it returned to its natural environment by itself.
