So many of you are asking for more information about Snowplow. Here is a link to new video shot at the scene and the latest statement from Ashley Stokes, Coordinator for New Hampshire Marine Mammal Rescue:
“Externally, there were no signs that showed what may have happened to this young whale, and Humpbacks are an endangered species, so it was important that we do our due diligence as biologists to learn as much as we can from this great whale. Internally, her organs were in advanced decomposition, but NEAQ sampled what they could, in hopes that in the coming weeks, some pathology results might shed some light on what happened to Snowplow. We will be sure to share any information as it becomes available.
Pleaset consider supporting our Marine Mammal Rescue Team’s work by making a donation in Snowplow’s memory. With limited federal funding, we rely heavily on the support of donations to continue doing this important work for marine mammals!”
