Two more pilot whales found on Vic coast

More Than 140 Whales Die After Mass Stranding in New Zealand Nearly 30 whales stranded on remote Victorian beach

An massive effort to save a pod of rare pygmy whales has had a tragic ending with five of the six creatures refloated yesterday re-stranding on another beach further north.

It is not known if the two deaths were related to the 27 pilot whales which mysteriously stranded themselves at Croajingolong National Park in East Gippsland.

"Walkers on this remote section of the Wilderness Coast will also be advised not to enter the water due to the increased likelihood of sharks in the area attracted by the dead whales", an environment department statement also reads.

Four of the 28 whales at Rame Head were alive when rescue crews arrived on Tuesday evening, but it was feared they would be dead by the time they returned in the morning.

It is thought the humpback whale may have died in a separate incident and washed up by coincidence.

The whale carcasses are unlikely to be removed by authorities and could be left on the beach to be dragged out by the tide.

The AWS Ground Station unit will build a network of 12 satellite facilities across the world and start operations next year. The Amazon .com company has termed the services as the world's first "fully-managed ground station as-a-service".

Mr Turner said the whales would probably be euthanised if their condition had not improved. "It's such a remote location, there's really not much else we can do", Turner said.

The control centre would alert people who had registered to do the park's Wilderness Coast Walk that the whale carcasses would remain there, the spokeswoman said.

Sharks may be more active in the area.

"The beach is regularly used by locals and visitors so by removing the whales the beach can be enjoyed again".

The latest beaching comes two days after more than 100 whales were founded stranded on a remote shore of New Zealand's Stewart Island.
