This was also deplored the village chief and manager of the hotel, Aziz Ait Itto. "I have been informed in any way by the authorities. It is through the press and the people I met at the hotel I knew there was the carcass of a sperm whale behind the hotel, "he said.
The presence of what remains of whales in the lagoon does not seem to disturb the tourists who continue to indulge in holiday activities. "As long as we do not approach this does not bother me. The hotel we were not informed of the presence of the wreck, "says one of them.
