Rescuers were racing against the clock Monday to save two huge sperm whales stranded on a Tasmanian sandbank after 22 others died, the Australian Parks and Wildlife Service said. Marine mammal specialists were on site in Macquarie Harbour at Strahan on Tasmania's northwest coast, but the rescue bid was hampered by rough weather. Twenty-two of the whales washed ashore on Saturday at Ocean Beach near Strahan, and all of them died.
