It has been told from the spokesperson of the department that all these whales were together in the same group and had left their mother. It is often told to the general public that it is illegal to tamper with or interfere with wildlife in any way, including the acquisition of dead whales. They are always asked to keep a distance from these whales.
According to the department, the arrival of sperm whale at this place is an extraordinary event. This whale was seen here which is quite unusual. After an aerial survey, it can be ascertained whether there are any other whales here. The department has asked surfers and swimmers to stay away from the area.
