Something of a rare occurrence, the beaching of whales rarely has any explanation and this case is no different. Dr. Deborah Kelly, an animal welfare managing the case stated “I haven’t seen a marine event like this in South Australia since the mass stranding of 58 dolphins at Nepean Bay in the 1990s.” The Department of Environment is considering options for removal of the carcasses adding “It’s a very big logistical task.” Read more and check out the video hereSeven-dead-whales
