130 Pilot Whales Rescued After Mass Beaching in Australia
130 Pilot Whales Rescued After Mass Beaching in Australia0An operation to save the lives of long-finned pilot whales stranded along the shores of Western Australia transpired on Apr. 25. Wildlife officials reported that while 29 of the 160 whales tragically lost their lives, efforts to return the surviving whales to the ocean have been largely successful. Pia Courtis, a regional wildlife officer, shared that the Parks and Wildlife Service would carefully examine the deceased whales to gather valuable biological data.

The pods of whales beached themselves along the beach at the Toby Inlet, near the town of Dunsborough. Images circulated on social media, allowing marine officials and volunteers to respond swiftly. The groups tirelessly worked to ensure the whales’ blowholes remained clear so that they could breathe. These dedicated individuals’ efforts allowed 130 whales to return to the sea.

This event is not an isolated incident. Australia has witnessed several such strandings in recent years. But in most cases, these strandings end with the death or euthanasia of most of the beached whales. It is difficult for beached whales to survive as the weight of their bodies begins crushing their organs once they are out of the water. They typically only survive six hours on land.

Pilot whales live in close-knit pods of 10 to 20 individuals. However, their social bonds mean that when one becomes stranded, the rest follow. Experts have proposed various theories for the latest stranding, including the pods following a sick whale and getting stuck, becoming confused by undersea noise caused by humans, or attempting to avoid predators.
