Today a Brydes Whale stranded in Pantai Batubelig. In cooperation with BPSPL Westerlaken Foundation / Yayasan Bali Bersih took DNA samples and handled the case as first responder. Brydes Whale (Balaenoptera edeni) are of least concern on the IUCN Red List, though we do not see them much in Balinese waters. This case reminds us of the stranding of a Brydes Whale calf in February 2016 in Canggu.
