Over 150 Pilot Whales Beached In Australia, Only 15 Alive [Photos, Video]

More than 150 pilot whales were stranded on Western Australia’s southwest coast, leading to deaths of most of the cetaceans on Friday in what was one of largest mass beachings in recent history.

According to the latest update from Parks and Wildlife, parks and business development coordinator Ben Tannock said only 15 of the whales could be saved, as trained volunteers and specialist staff from Parks and Wildlife and Sea Search and Rescue tried to quickly get as many whales as they could into deep water.
