The whales in the southern Australian state of Tasmania are dying. They are probably becoming disoriented in confusing coastal waters, according to officials. About 110 stranded whales have died till date. The long-finned pilot whales died after two separate strandings on Tuesday and Wednesday in the Marion Bay area, on the southeastern coast of the island state. The complex topography of the area is predicted to be the most likely reason for the stranding. According to an official, the whales were stranded in a large bay with frequently changing water depths, sandy spits and rocky outcrops, as well as a narrow opening to the ocean. Teams of wildlife officials and volunteers had managed to save about 19 whales and buried the 110 dead whales.
