Commotion on Beau Vallon beach

ISLAND CONSERVATION - 11.05.2009 


There must be very few people left who actually witnessed the scene, but for a long time the story of the mass stranding of whales at Beau Vallon was told to children by parents and grandparents. It was in the evening of Saturday January 28, 1933 that eleven sperm whales ended up stranded on the beach. Some of them, at least, were still clearly alive.

 The news spread quickly around Mahé and over the next few days large crowds gathered to see the beached whales. Teachers and pupils alike skipped classes to go to Beau Vallon. Photographer François Vel (1875-1946) of Rue Quincy was among those who rushed to the scene. It is to him that we owe the photograph accompanying this article.

One account (published in Cluny Missions, the magazine of the Sœurs de Saint Joseph de Cluny!) speaks of “une plage en émoi”: “Quelle foule sur les lieux! Tout Mahé est là, même le Gouverneur [British Governor De Symons Honey] dont nous avons suivi la voiture sur la route.
