Stranded Whale Still Stuck on Gold Coast Beach

The juvenile humpback became stranded on the sand at Palm Beach late on Tuesday but is now swimming out to sea. The rescuers were successful on their fifth attempt to free the whale after earlier managing to move the whale towards the back of the breakers before the tow rope snapped and the humpback was back on the sand.

Sea World spokeswoman Tacha Mulligan says she is hopeful the whale will survive despite being out of the water for some time. “We were working against the conditions – time was running out on us”, she said. “It was the perfect time to go when we were able to release it. However, it has been out of the water and we are cautiously optimistic it will be OK from here on in”.

But the defense mechanism just seemed to be attracting more hungry creatures, Bouton said, as hundreds of pelicans and seagulls were diving in the water and flying up again. Continue reading »

Abandoned Tsunami Ghost Ship Sinks off Alaskan Coast

The ghost ship is reportedly one of the 1.5 million tonnes of debris the Japanese government estimates was dragged out to sea during the 2011 Tsunami. The ship was believed to have been carrying more than 9,000 litres of diesel fuel and was sunk by the region’s Coast Guards180 miles west of the Southeast Alaskan coast. The open firing was carried out to eliminate any threat to navigation in the area. The Ryou-Un Maru reportedly stayed afloat for a number of hours before ultimately sinking.
