Tuesday May 4, the France 2 teams will take you to the Var, to the port of Bormes-les-Mimosas. It is here that a young whale of almost 7 meters in length seems to have strayed.
In the waters of the Mediterranean, a 7-meter-long calf seems to be moving peacefully. However, he did get lost. The animal belongs to the species of gray whales, native to the North Pacific Ocean. The person concerned was first observed in Morocco and then in Italy, to finally find himself, a few days ago, in the port of Bormes-les-Mimosas, in the Var.
It was an unprecedented spectacle for a yachtsman, Tom Hilaire, who went out to wakeboard: “She appeared just to the left of the boat, got out for a breath, and dived back into the water and turned left.“For the young man, this experience was”unbelievable“.”On the one hand, it’s super sad because she has nothing to do here“, he adds. An operation was then launched to get the calf from the port. With two boats, the firefighters managed to push it out to sea. No GPS beacon was placed on it but each semaphore installed along the coastline notes its position over the hours.The person concerned is, Tuesday, May 4, in Occitania.
