Thumbs down VIDEO/PHOTOS:Many Whales died Today -UK & USA

Whales die off coast of Scotland but hope for rescued mammals

More than a dozen whales have died in a mass stranding off the coast of Scotland, as rescuers struggle to rescue the rest of the pod.


Tens of rescuers, watched by hundreds of spectators, worked through the day to keep the whales alive using wet blankets

The 26 pilot whales were discovered on the beach at Pittenweem near St Andrews on Sunday morning.

Tens of rescuers, watched by hundreds of spectators, worked through the day to keep the whales alive using wet blankets. At high tide ten of the whales were floated and it is now hoped they will remain at sea.

However 16 of the whales, including four calves have died.

It is believed the 20-feet long animals became stranded after following a sick animal onto shore.

Ali Jack, the Scottish co-ordinator of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, said the ten surviving whales may become stranded again or die from stress.

"We are hopeful all the ten will survive - but I would say the chances are 50-50. It is up to the animals now. People here certainly couldn't have done more - they were magnificent."

Rescuers were also worried about a further 24 pilot whales from the same pod are in the shallows three miles along the coast at Cellardyke. It is hoped the whales will "work together" to go back out to sea.


Meanwhile officials and volunteers attempt to save a pod of 22 pilot whales found beached on the Florida coastline. Rescue teams poured water on the mammals and transported them onto trucks to be taken to a rehabilitation centre. Only five whales, two calves and three juveniles, survived.
END

Very very sad.

Florida volunteers attempt to rescue 22 beached pilot whales

US officials and volunteers take part in a huge rescue operation after a pod of 22 pilot whales were found beached in Florida.

2nd Sept 2012





The pilot whales came ashore on a South Florida beach, triggering a daylong effort by state and national officials, residents and others to save them.

By Saturday evening, five pilot whales - two calves and three juveniles - had been transported to Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Institute for rehabilitation.

The rest had died of natural causes or had to be humanely euthanised, said Allison Garrett, a spokesperson for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Fisheries Service.

Ms Garrett offered a possible explanation as to why the whales became stranded.

"Typically, if one animal is not well, they will follow the others to .... they will come into shore and the others will follow suit," she said.

Residents came to the beach to assist with the rescue, helping the animals turn upright so they could breathe better.
Volunteers covered the whales with moist towels and poured water over them.
Ms Garrett said there was no obvious sign of trauma or injury to the whales, but that autopsies would be performed on them.
She said officials and volunteers spent the day assessing the health of the whales to see which could be rehabilitated, and then making the others comfortable.
The last such beaching in the area was in May 2011, on the Florida Keys, according to the spokesperson.
END




What a co-incidence eh? the same day and many whales are beached in different parts of the world because of maybe the same illness??
It is just heart breaking to see this.
