Humpback whale dies alone at Riis Park


 A 28-foot-long humpback whale washed ashore Tuesday at Jacob Riis Park in Queens, according to state environmental officials and the nonprofit Atlantic Marine Conservation Society.

In keeping with social distancing guidelines issued by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, scientists with the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society did not examine the whale, according to a news release.

This is the first stranded whale reported to the New York-based Atlantic Marine Conservation Society's stranding response team so far this year.

"It is always unfortunate when a whale washes up on our beaches," Atlantic Marine Conservation Society chief scientist Rob DiGiovanni said. "By working together, we strive to collect as much information as possible to help understand the cause of mortality."

What if the great mammal is alive? The AMCS can't get n95 masks either?

If this whale needs a respirator, it's out of luck

Last anon re: Riis

I think you're right. Obviously reporters are going by where the picture was taken. I thought it was Riis because I can see where the bathrooms and the pitch and putt course are located in the background.

@Anon re: big dead whale.

I would like to update this as much as I can (thanks for making me feel essential), but like millions of others I've been busy trying to get much needed aid from the government. Also, I have been reading a lot of articles lately trying to get as informed about this virus and the governments response to it that it's taking me away from Impunity city too.

Sorry for the delays. I probably need to start a gofundme.
