Only six of the more than 150 pilot whales that were stranded on Friday in an Australian bay have survived and have been returned to the sea
Visitors to a beach in Australia were surprised to see that 150 whales were stranded in Hamelin Bay. The area had to be closed to the public to perform the rescue work.
Seeing this unfortunate scene, a hundred volunteers organized to stabilize the cetaceans. In the YouTube images, it is observed that the activists were helped with towels and various containers to help the animals.
Ecological groups that also participated in this rescue work reported that only six of the more than 150 pilot whales have survived and have been returned to the sea.
In the video uploaded to YouTube you can see the impotence of volunteers who could do little to help these large animals. The pilot whale, also called short fin, measures between 4 and 5.5 meters, and inhabits tropical and subtropical waters in groups of about one hundred members.
It is not the first time that a group of pilot whales has been stranded on the beaches of Australia due to causes unknown to experts.
