Doing my Daily Search of RSOE and i came across this,

Twenty-four pilot whales have died on a remote beach in the far north of New Zealand, the Department of Conservation was quoted as saying on Friday by press reports. Fourteen of the whales were already dead when the group was found scattered over 150 metres of rocks, mud and mangrove early Friday in Parengarenga Harbour, 15 kilometres south of North Cape. They appeared to have become stranded the previous day. The department said the others had to be put down because they were in poor condition and chances of successfully refloating them in deteriorating weather were remote. "If we felt there was a real chance we could have successfully rescued them, we would have," the department's area manager Jonathan Maxwell was quoted as saying by the New Zealand Press Association. "Sadly, the current conditions were against these animals," Maxwell said. "The kindest thing was to end their suffering."

Interesting, thank you for the research and I will be looking at this closely at another time, we may very well have an epidemic on our hands. Granted whales beach themselves for different reasons, some say sonar and other man made causes, but we will have to see. I still appreciate the research.

This is so sad - I know whales beach themselves for different reasons but they are large and usually pretty hearty to weather changes. I assume they are saying this is weather related. I am thinking of their sonar in relation to the magnetic field. Sadly more animals to add to the list. Let us know if you hear more about the whales or other animals. Take care - I know its been rough.

There are many peguins as well. They are starving to death according the NZ news.
