Huge 50 Foot Sperm Whale Washes up on Kili Island Reef in the Marshall Islands

On the morning of Friday, October 22, a huge 50 foot adult Sperm whale washed ashore on the reef of Kili Island in the Marshall Islands. The whale was dead when it was discovered. Kili Island is the home for over 1000 Bikinians who were removed from their homeland in 1946 to make way for the U.S. nuclear weapons testing program.
