About 200 dolphins, pilot whales became stranded in New Zealand
The incident occurred about 11 km from the place where the day before on the shore, they found more than 400 g.
SYDNEY, February 11. /Offset. TASS Pavel Vanichkin/. About 200 pilot whales beached last night on the coast of New Zealand. This was reported by radio new Zealand the representative of the national environmental Agency Andrew Lamason.
According to him, the animals beached on the shore of Cape Farwell about 11 km from the place where a day earlier on the beach jumped over 400 grind.
On Friday, around 300 animals died, people were able to bring a depth of about 50 pilot whales and about 50 remained in shallow water near the shore last night. There was a hope that during the night high tide the water rises to the desired level to allow Grandam to go into the ocean, but this did not happen. As a result, several dozen individuals, who on Friday went deep into the sea, was again thrown on the shore.
Cape Farwell currently employs hundreds of volunteers who are trying to shelter animals pieces of cloth and pour water over them.
The situation is complicated by the fact that the death of animals attracted sharks, which work on a scene become unsafe.
Length of grind is from four to eight metres, they weigh about 800 kg.
