Mr. Ngo Gia Ngai, Chair of Ngu Thuy Cung Commune, said preserving and rescuing endangered sea animals are always respected by local people.

Late last year, a sea turtle of 300-400 kg that was caught in the nets of local fishermen was also released back to the ocean.

On May 21, an injured whale drifted on the shore of Duy Hai Commune in Duy Xuyen District, the central province of Quang Nam. The animal is 4m long and about one ton in weight.

On the morning of May 22, the whale drifted on shore again but it was very weak. The animal died soon after.

The local government and people are holding a funeral for the whale on May 23.
