AT LEAST 90 WHALES DEAD IN STANDING OF AUSTRALIA

Rescuers said at least a third of 270 whales stranded off the coast of Australia’s Tasmania have died and more are feared to be dying.

The mass stranding on the west coast of the island was discovered on Monday.

Marine biologists are scrambling to save the remaining pilot whales in a tricky operation likely to take days.

It’s unknown what drew the whales to the shore. Whale beachings are common in the region, but one of this size has not been seen in over a decade.

Tasmania last recorded a mass stranding in 2009 involving around 200 whales.
