Strand­ings re­sponse

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Your Feedback - Jan­ice Bridger, Via email

Your reader who de­fended the Ir­ish Whale and Dol­phin Group (Feed­back, Novem­ber 2014) re­minded me of an ex­change I had with them in 2012. A fin whale had stranded and was left to die at Bal­ti­more while we were there on hol­i­day. I wrote to say that some­thing could have been done to help it – but it was too sick, I was told, and the group only had limited re­sources. We need proper guid­ance and an in­ter­na­tional, co-or­di­nated re­sponse to whale strand­ings.
