Last pilot whale guided out to sea

04/03/2009

Whale rescuers today successfully returned the last live whale stranded on Naracoopa Beach to the water.

Parks and Wildlife Service Reserves manager Chris Arthur said the adult female pilot whale was slung between two jet skis and taken off-shore before being released.

"The whale was seen to swim toward a group of whales in the area, several of which had been tagged by rescuers two days earlier.

"This rescue effort has seen 54 pilot whales and five bottlenose dolphins successfully returned to the sea.

"It has been a fantastic effort by everyone involved, particularly the King Island community, who have assisted in making possible one of the largest successful whale rescues in the State's history," Mr Arthur said.
