More Than 120 Whales Been Saved In Panadura Mass Beach


A combination of the national navy and volunteers worked together on an overnight operation to push the whales back out to sea in Panadura, Sri Lanka.

Despite the fact this was the island nation’s biggest ever beaching event, the vast majority of the animals were rescued with only two believed to have died on the beach. Local villagers joined the rescue mission amid a coronavirus curfew in the area, all to save the stranded whales. The Panadura incident has been confirmed as the largest single pod of whales stranded in the south Asian country by Sri Lanka’s Marine Environment Protection Authority (MEPA).
