NOAA Fisheries looking for people to volunteer their waterfront property… for whale decomposition
NOAA Fisheries West Coast Region has an unusual request for people who own waterfront property. They want to use it for whale decomposition. About 30 gray whales have washed up on Washington shores so far in 2019. That's the most in about 20 years. Many died due to starvation. Several have stranded in the inland waters of Puget Sound and the Salish Sea exhausting most of the known locations where they can be left to decompose naturally.
