As a result, the Municipal Secretariat of Health, Sanitation and Environment [Semma] has been carrying out an investigation to determine why the marine animal was far from its natural habitat and in the winter season.

Biologists from the NGO Bicho D’água are looking to find out the cause of the animal’s death. “They’re going to do the necropsy. To the naked eye, there are no injuries. So we need to understand what culminated in the death of the whale”, Dirlene Silva explained.
