Whales in new plight

The People - - NEWS FEATURES & -

AL­MOST 250 more whales washed up in New Zealand yes­ter­day as vol­un­teers risked shark at­tacks, stingrays and neck- deep wa­ter to try and save them.

Dozens formed a hu­man chain to stop whales that had ear­lier been re­floated com­ing back ashore at Farewell Spit, South Is­land.

But a fresh pod of al­most 250 ar­rived last night in the coun­try’s worst strand­ing.

More than 300 orig­i­nal ar­rivals have died. It is thought they may have been driven ashore by sharks.
