The staff of the San Pedro Hol Chan Marine Reserve is being assisted by local authorities and tour guides to protect a stranded juvenile Pilot Whale that is just circling the shallow area just in front of Island Academy/The Belize Yacht Club.

Personnel of Hol Chan Marine Reserve were called this morning around 8:30a.m., July 30, 2014, to the site where the whale was spotted by local tour guides. There are obvious lacerations to its right pectoral fin and head and deep cut wounds to its snout. It is believed that the whale was injured by a passing boat and got lost inside the reef. These whales frequent the deep waters just outside of the Belize Barrier Reef and are a common sight.

Juvenile pilot whale found stranded on the shores of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Hol Chan Marine personnel have intervened and are assisting the weak whale. Hopefully it will make it back to open water safely. Thanks to Eric for providing the photos and story.

UPDATE - Sadly we report that the pilot whale did not make it due to the extent of its injuries. An autopsy is going to be conducted to figure out the cause of death.
