More than 150 short-finned pilot whales were found stranded on a beach in Western Australia. Although over 50 whales were already dead, Australian news outlets report that responders were able to pull some back to sea with large cranes. However, most of the whales could not be saved as the small whales weigh between one to six tons. ___ Scientist Nicola Hodgins from the Whales and Dolphins Conservation said this scenario is not a rarity and unfortunately happens quite often. She explains that whales are very social and close knit, and often form large groups that follow a matriarch. “If one is sick, then the other whales don’t want to leave their side,” and often times sick whales cannot swim so get pulled onto shore. “The other animals end up beaching as well because they don’t want to leave them,” Hodgins said. Another explanation for the stranding could be a disturbance underwater from sonic bombs caused from oil and gas exploration or military sonar. ___ Photo: Western Australia Department of Biodiversity Conservation and Attractions: WORLD NEWS 150 BEACHED WHALES Mar 23 | Over 150 short-finned pilot whales found stranded on a beach in Western Australia.
