Landowners asked to help as authorities struggle with largest number of strandings in nearly two decades
The carcasses of so many gray whales have washed up this year on the US west coast that authorities have run out of places to put them, and has asked landowners for help to bury them.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries (NOAA Fisheries) has asked landowners to volunteer property as a disposal site for the huge animals. By doing so, landowners can support the natural process of the marine environment, and skeletons left behind can be used for educational purposes, officials said.
