Farewell Spit has been in the news recently as a number of whales accidentally swam into the spit and became stuck on the beach. They were unable to swim back to the ocean because the water was too shallow. Many local people tried to save the ‘beached’ whales. Please follow this Farewell Spit link to learn more about what happened. On your blog, describe what the local people did to try and save the beached whales.
It was very sad News. I heard that people splash water on the whales. They also put towels to cover the whales from the sun, and they dug the sand to reach the water. But three hundred whales died.
