Researchers with Allied Whale at College of the Atlantic began taking measurements and data June 14 from Spinnaker, the 11-year old female humpback whale found washed ashore in Acadia National Park earlier this week.

A full necropsy to determine the cause of death is planned for Monday, June 15 after the late morning high tide to be led by Rosemary Seton, Dan DenDanto and Laura Lyell.
