A juvenile humpback whale washed ashore Tuesday afternoon off Corolla village. The whale was discovered around 12:30 p.m. at the Lighthouse Road beach access.

“Tides inhibited a complete exam today so a more thorough investigation will take place tomorrow once the animal lands a little farther up the beach away from the water’s edge,” said Karen Clark, Outer Banks Marine Mammal Stranding Network program coordinator at the Outer Banks Center for Wildlife Education in Corolla.

Members of the Outer Banks Marine Mammal Stranding Network, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, the Virginia Aquarium and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute will be performing a necropsy Wednesday if conditions allow, according to Clark.
