Almost 400 whales die in Australia’s worst stranding
Almost four hundred pilot whales have died after they became stranded on a Tasmanian sandbank – in what’s thought to be Australia’s worst stranding on record.
The pod of around 500 whales got washed up in the waters on Tasmania’s west coast. Rescuers said they wouldn’t give up their efforts while there were still some of the mammals alive.
