A whale washed ashore on Kolonga beach this afternoon Sunday 22.

Tongan journalist Melemanu Bloomfield took photos at the scene.

She said it appeared the whale, of unknown species, had probably been dead for some time before washing ashore.

Some of the people at the scene tried to remove its teeth, she added.

Sometimes when a business is growing, it needs a little help.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
