Since Monday night, the Navy has also deployed the KRI Simeulu boat to help rescue the whales.

The sperm whales were stranded on Ujong Kareung Beach, attracting the public who then flocked to the scene.

Relevant institutions also came to the area to offer help, including the Aceh Marine Office, BKSDA Aceh, the Police, TNI, Basarnas, Aceh Disaster Management Agency, FKH Unsyiah, the Quarantine Fisheries, and Panglima Laot Aceh. They work together to pull the 8-10 meters mammals back into the sea.
