Rescuers saved dozens of whales and several dolphins stranded on a beach in the southern Australian island
Posted on: 03-03-2009 , 04:: | DY365 Bureau

Tasmania's Parks and Wildlife Service, told the media that 54 whales and seven dolphins were still alive. Rescuers were keeping the animals wet and trying to determine how to move them out to the open water.

  They used stretchers to carry dolphins into the shallows, and used small boats and a jet ski to pull whales out to sea. Rescuers were hopeful they would stay away from the shore. More than 100 King Island residents had also volunteered to help the efforts.

  In January, 45 sperm whales died after becoming stranded on a remote Tasmanian sandbar, even though rescuers worked for days to keep them cool and wet as they tried to move them back to the open water. A week earlier, rescuers saved 11 pilot whales among a pod of 60 that had beached on the island state.
