477 whales die inside 'heartbreaking' New Zealand strandings

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) — Some 477 airman whales have died following stranding themselves on place of set of two faraway New Zealand beaches over recent days, officials say.

None of the stranded whales could exist refloated accompanied by every one one other accompanied by all either died by the natural world or were euthanized inside a "heartbreaking" loss, said Daren Grover, the general administrative of Project Jonah, a nonprofit category which helps rescue whales.

The whales beached themselves on the Chatham Islands, which are place of residence to concerning 600 people accompanied by every one one other accompanied by located concerning 800 kilometers (500 miles) the orient of New Zealand's main islands.

The Department of Conservation said 232 whales stranded themselves Friday at Tupuangi Beach accompanied by every one one other accompanied by another 245 at Waihere Bay on Monday.

The deaths go nearer place of set of two weeks following concerning 200 airman whales died inside Australia following stranding themselves on a faraway Tasmanian beach.

"These events are tough, challenging situations," the Department of Conservation wrote inside a Facebook post. "Although they are natural occurrences, they are still sad accompanied by every one one other accompanied by difficult for those helping."

Grover said the faraway location accompanied by every one one other accompanied by presence of sharks inside the surrounding waters meant they couldn't mobilize volunteers to try to refloat the whales while they have inside past stranding events.

"We do not actively refloat whales on the Chatham Islands due to the chance of shark assault to humans accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the whales themselves, so euthanasia was the kindest option," said Dave Lundquist, a technical marine advisor for the conservation department.

Mass strandings of airman whales are reasonably usual inside New Zealand, mostly all over the summer months. Scientists don't know exactly what causes the whales to strand, although it appears their location systems tin obtain confused by gently sloping sandy beaches.

Grover said there is a a large amount of food for the whales around the Chatham Islands, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by while they bathe closer to land, they would fast find themselves going from extremely deep to shallow water.

"They exist contingent on on their echolocation accompanied by every one one other accompanied by yet it doesn't tell them that they are running not here of water," Grover said. "They go nearer closer accompanied by every one one other accompanied by closer to shore accompanied by every one one other accompanied by become disoriented. The tide tin at that hour dated permit let fall from beneath them accompanied by every one one other accompanied by earlier to they know it, they're stranded on the beach."

Because of the faraway location of the beaches, the whale carcasses won't exist buried or towed not here to sea, while is regularly the case, nevertheless while an different will exist left-hand to decompose, Grover said.

"Nature is a great recycler accompanied by every one one other accompanied by all the vitality stored within the bodies of all the whales will exist returned to the natural world completely quickly," he said.
