The Department of Conservation has confirmed the mammal washed up on Caroline Bay last Friday was a spectacled porpoise but the cause of death is yet to be determined.

DOC biodiversity ranger Steve Harraway said the carcass was sent to an expert at Otago University.

There have been only half a dozen spectacled porpoises washed up on New Zealand beaches.
