3RD PLACE - WILDLIFE & THE COAST
LOCATION : Mace Head, Co. Galway
"This sperm whale came ashore at Mace Head, Co. Galway in the spring of 2019. He was one of 3 sperm whales stranded along the west coast within days of each other which was very abnormal. While not proven, it seems likely he was adversely affected by an impact leading to his and the others sudden deaths, noise pollution may be that affect."
