Almost 30 pilots and humpbacks beach themselves on Australian coast more than 145 died New Zealand
A large number of whales have beached themselves on the coastlines of Australia and New Zealand in the past week.
On Sunday afternoon a passer-by discovered 28 beached whales at Croajingolong National Park in Victoria’s far east, following two further beachings in New Zealand.
The discoveries again raised the question of what causes such mass beachings and whether the incidences could be linked.
A passer-by first spotted the beached whales at the Victorian national park around 4pm on Sunday afternoon and alerted authorities. A wildlife expert was flown into the area and pronounced most of the 28 stranded whales dead.
