“Where natural death occurs, the cause of death is very hard to figure out without an in depth pathological investigation, although beached animals often have high parasite loads so 'sickness' is a likely underlying cause or starvation – and that is possibly a cause here as many of the humpbacks around now are hungry after a long winter not feeding,” said Elwen.

Elwen said he was not aware if the whale died naturally or from a ship strike, a collision between any floating vessel and a marine animal in the ocean which was an increasing concern because over 50 whales were reported off both Kommetjie and off Llandudno on Sunday with ships passing just offshore of those areas. But from the media shared, the co-director said this particular whale death did not seem to be caused by a ship strike.
