The whales stranded once again with the falling tide and veterinary experts determined the animals were too weak to survive another rescue attempt. By late afternoon, the difficult decision was made to euthanize the remaining animals and end their suffering.

All members of IFAW's Emergency Relief Team would like to extend our sincere thanks for the tremendous outpouring of support we received during this difficult event.
