Blue whale washes up on southern Oregon beach “Video”

A blue whale washed up on a beach in southern Oregon earlier this week.

Since Wednesday, volunteers have been working to take apart the 78-foot endangered sea creature on the Oregon coast.

Friday was the first day workers used machinery to take off the whale’s blubber and remove its bones.

Animal experts say that they are still looking into the cause of death for the whale, but they do say many sea creatures are being impacted by weather patterns.

Officials say that the bones will be taken out on the beach and reconstructed in the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport. The center is set to open in 2018.
