Tuesday 30th October, 2018-A Sperm Whale is back in deep waters after it was seen close to shore in the Darkwood area earlier today.
In what is being described as a rare occurrence among sperm whales, the juvenile was eventually assisted back into deeper waters by the Coast Guard and other people with boats including environmentalist Eli Fuller.
Fuller says they were able after more than an hour to lead the whale into deeper waters, just outside of Cades Reef. He suspects it ventured off on its own and became lost in the process.
The environmentalist is encouraging citizens and residents to report such sightings, since there are groups around the world that can assist with information in returning the ocean dwellers to safety.
