“A group of about 230 whales stranded near Port Macquarie,” Tasmania’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment said, adding, “It appears that half of these animals are still alive,” according to “AFP.”

Aerial footage showed a horrific sight of dozens of these black mammals scattered along a wide beach.

About two years ago, the region witnessed a mass stranding of about 500 pilot whales, most of which died, and only about a hundred of them survived.

The causes of collective delinquency are not yet clear.

According to the researchers, these animals may have lost their way in the water when they came too close to the coast.

Since pilot whales are social animals, they may follow those that stray and become endangered.

Officials confirmed that marine conservation experts and personnel equipped with whale rescue equipment went to the stranding site.
