A massive rescue: Saves 200 whales stranded on a WA beach

  • More than 200 pilot whales were rescued by wildlife rescuers.
  • Authorities tried to rescue the whales, but 31 of them were lost to extinction.
  • According to Parks and Wildlife, there were four whale pods dispersed over 500 meters of shoreline.

More than 200 pilot whales were rescued by wildlife rescuers from a huge stranding on a beach in the southwest of Western Australia. Authorities tried to rescue the whales, but 31 of them were lost to extinction.

About 243 kilometers southwest of Perth, in Toby’s Inlet, close to Dunsborough, the whales became stranded. Ian Wiese, chairman of Geographe Marine Research, said it was a good tale because often, situations like this result in approximately 100 whales dying and just about five being saved.

A massive rescue

There were roughly 200 individuals with the whales and about 160 whales that were nearly out of the water when Wiese arrived on the scene. The whales that were still alive suddenly departed and headed out to sea after about an hour.

Wiese has been to three mass strandings in the southwest of Washington. Authorities issued a warning to the public that there might be an increase in shark activity in the area and that sharks might be drawn to the area by dead or injured animals.

According to Parks and Wildlife, there were four whale pods dispersed over 500 meters of shoreline. Measurements and samples are being taken by authorities to determine whether there is a demographic shift occurring.

In addition to post-mortem examinations, they are gathering morphometric measures to ascertain the age and sex of the deceased whales.

According to a representative for Parks and Wildlife, every attempt was being made to react appropriately, protect personnel and volunteers, and act in the whales’ best interests. To keep the whales together and off the beach, they are evaluating the conditions of the stranded whales.
