The body of a female Beaked Whale - and a calf - was spotted off the shores of Port Valdez last week, prompting the National Marine Fisheries to bring in scientists and well as local hands to investigate the deaths. Dr. Russ Andrews (left to right) from the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward, along with technician Natalie Rouse, (center) and veterinary pathologist Kathy Burek Huntington autopsied the adult on the shoreline.
