200 pilot whales (species of dolphin) and a few bottle-nosed dolphins began mass stranding
on Sunday, night, March 1, 2009, at a King Island beach above. On March 2, 2009, about 50 animals
were saved by human volunteers (below) and the rest died. King Island is in the Bass Strait
between northern Tasmania, an Australian state, and Melbourne, Australia.
