At least 380 whales dead in Australia mass stranding

At least 380 whales have died in a mass stranding in southern Australia, officials said yesterday, with rescuers managing to free just a few dozen survivors. Nearly the entire pod of 460 long-finned pilot whales stuck in Macquarie Harbour, on the rugged and sparsely populated west coast of Tasmania, has now perished. "We have got a more accurate count and we can confirm that 380 whales are dead," Tasmania's Parks and Wildlife Service manager Nic Deka said. "There's around 30 left still alive but the good news is that we have saved 50," he said, describing the rescue effort as emotionally taxing.
