4th Stranded Humpback Whale in 2018 Strands in Breezy Point

On Friday, June 1, 2018 Atlantic Marine Conservation Society (AMCS) was made aware of a deceased humpback whale in Breezy Point near the Silver Gull Beach Club. This whale was the fourth humpback to wash up on New York shores and the third one in less than 30 days. The following day, AMCS conducted the necropsy with support from Gateway National Park Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries, NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and Sea Turtle Recovery to discover what happened to this animal.
