Whales stranding on coast: Another 200 fish found in New Zealand, adding frustration of rescuers

New Delhi:

Another 200 whales on Saturday were stranded on a New Zealand coastline, adding to frustration of rescuers who had battled through the day and some even defied shark threat.

Earlier on February 10, more than 400 whales were stranded on a beach and about three-quarters of them have died in what authorities are describing as the worst whale stranding they’ve ever seen.

The pilot whales were found at remote Farewell Spit at the tip of the South Island. It’s an area that seems to confuse whales and has been the site of previous mass strandings.

Conservation workers and volunteers were hoping to refloat the surviving whales at high tide on Friday morning.
