  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Dozens of pilot whales dead after becoming stranded off coast of Tasmania” – below is their description.

    Up to 90 whales have died and 180 more are still stranded in a remote bay in southern Australia as a “challenging” rescue operation began on Tuesday. Scientists said two large pods of long-finned pilot whales became stuck on sandbars in Macquarie Harbour, on Tasmania’s rugged and sparsely populated west coast. Images showed shallow water thick with scores of the large slick-black mammals manoeuvering for space. Government marine biologist Kris Carlyon said “about a third” of the animals were dead by Monday and rescuing survivors would be a “challenging” task likely to take several days. Though mass whale strandings occur relatively often in Tasmania, such a large group has not been seen in the area for more than a decade.
