Beaked Whale stranded at Afono

Alden Tagarino, Fale Tuilagi and Afa Uikirifi are conducting the initial assessment which is getting length and width measurements, tissue samples and determined that it was a Female Beaked Whale.  The first responders helped with setting a boundary where people can't get close where the whale was and Tafito helped to stopped an excavator that was on the way to Vatia so we can dispose the Whale.  Thanks to Va'alele Maiva Mao, the land owner of the site of the stranded for letting DMWR use his land to dispose the Beaked Whale.
