Telegraph pictures: Saving stranded whales & dolphins in Australia
A dead 17 long-finned pilot whale is carried away from a beach after it was stranded on a beach in Hamelin Bay, Western Australia

About 80 whales and dolphins were stranded on a remote southwest Australian beach. Authorities plan to truck the few survivors to a protected bay before attempting to launch them back to sea.

Last November, 150 long-finned pilot whales died after beaching on a rocky coastline one week after a pod of 60 also came ashore on the island state. Only 11 were rescued
