Around 450 pilot whales are currently stranded just off Tasmania’s west coast. This is how it happened and how we may be able to rescue them.
Authorities are currently working to save as many whales as possible.
Scientists are excited after a rare whale was found with an extra set of teeth, but we don’t know enough about the elusive species to call it an evolutionary throwback yet.
Australia is a global hotspot for mass whale strandings. The causes of these events are many, varied and often mysterious.
