WHALE SPOTTED BETWEEN BONZA BAY AND NAHOON BEACH

A humpback whale has been washed up between Bonza Bay and Nahoon coastline on Monday, 05 October 2020. 

The carcass is decomposing to a point that can attract sharks, resulting in a high shark activity in the area therefore, people are advised to stay away from these two areas.

As per level 1 COVID-19 regulations all the public beaches are still closed for swimming therefore the natural processes have been allowed to take place as the removal of the carcass is not feasible financially.

For any queries contact and interview contact BCM Chief of Marine Services on 043 705 2637
