Range Description

To date, Andrews' beaked whale is known only from a few dozen stranding records between 32S and 55S; most of these have come from the South Pacific and Indian oceans (well over half are from New Zealand Mead 1989; Baker 2001). Strandings have occurred in southern Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania, Tristan de Cunha, the Falkland Islands, Macquarie Island, Argentina and Uruguay. The overall range may be circumpolar in the Southern Hemisphere; however, there is a gap in the known distribution between the Chatham Islands, east of New Zealand and the west coast of South America.
