More than 250 whales stranded in Australia
More than 250 whales are stranded in a remote bay on the island of Tasmania, in southern Australia, and so far at least 25 have already died. Rescuers finalize the details of a plan to try to save them.
The Tasmanian State Ministry of the Environment said the cetaceans were stuck on a sandbar in Macquarie Harbor. A closed bay on the west coast of the island, which is entered through a narrow passage.
Two large groups of these mammals were stranded on the sandbars, about a hundred meters apart, in the interior of the bay.
They are in the water, but it is very difficult to see how many of these cetaceans are dead or in what state they are.
