4 #whales dead after stranding on a beach in #Ruakaka, #NewZealand
Four whales have died after becoming stranded along a Northland Beach.
Conservation charity Project Jonah said it sent medics to the Bream Bay area of Ruakākā to help with the rescue on Wednesday, but all the pilot whales had died.
Communications manager Louisa Hawkes said there were still a few hundred people at the beach sitting and watching, but currently no help was needed.
“[The rest of the pod] have been sighted off shore, if things change and they head in-shore then we will let people know and ask them to head down to the beach.”
