230 pilot whales washed ashore in Tasmania – exactly 2 years after the last mass stranding

In an unusual case of déjà vu, a group of about 230 pilot whales stranded on Tasmania’s west coast on Wednesday (September 21), exactly two years after another group of pilot whales were stranded on and near the same beach.

The harrowing moments of the stranding could very well have been a coincidence, Rob Deville, project manager for the London-based Cetacean Stranding Research Program (CSIP), told Live Science. A number of factors can cause cetaceans — marine mammals such as whales and dolphins — to run aground, and it’s unclear at this point what factors contributed to this particular incident, he said.
