Andrew Bond,Hunter Central Coast area manager of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPSW), said the whale carcass had to be broken upinto manageable pieces before it was removed from the beach on Thursday.

“Contractors working with ourNPWS team with a heavy excavator were able to load the whale into a six wheel truck beforetransporting it onto a low loader,” he said.

“From there it was transported to the burial site, a couple of kilometresfrom the coast in a former sand mined area, which by its very nature was already significantly disturbed and had no archaeological material.”

Mr Bond said the operation went well andhad to be carefully planned in terms of working withsuitable tides.
