DOC whale stranding update
5.30pm, Monday 20th January 2014
The 46 pilot whales refloated at Puponga today are still in fairly shallow water off Farewell Spit. Nothing more can be done tonight so DOC staff are leaving the area for the night and many volunteers who assisted today have also been leaving.
It is hoped the whales will make their way into deeper water overnight and not re-strand. DOC rangers will look at daybreak for the whales.
