I wonder what the records show for histories regarding these mammal
death anomalies. Some people say things like,” Oh, they have always
done this” but where is the real record keeping.
As time permits; (house, kids, dogs, health!!) I’ll try and dig up
some actual figures.
I am so grateful we have each other. Something is going on and it
What really hurts is our lack of trust of the very sources for
protection, we once took for granted.
Whales die in mass Tasmanian stranding
Most of a group of 70 pilot whales and other dolphins stranded on
Tasmania’s south coast have died before help could arrive.
Authorities say rescuers are working to save the remainder of the
group, spotted by a fisherman about 11am (AEDT) on Monday.
Parks and Wildlife spokeswoman Liz Wren said most of the mammals
were dead when officers reached the site of the stranding at Marion
Bay, about 60km east of Hobart.
However, she could not say exactly how many had died.
Most of the dolphins beached themselves at a spot known as the
southern Marion Narrows, a location inaccessible by road.
Eight others were found on the northern Narrows.
Ms Wren said rescuers would stay at the scene to keep the animals in
the water. Marion Bay was the sight of a major whale stranding about four years
Pilot whales – a member of the dolphin family – are one of the most
commonly stranded species in Tasmanian waters.
According to the Department of Primary Industries, Water and
Environment, 68 stranding occasions involving 2,768 pilots whales
were recorded up to October 2003.
