Time is running out for Britain’s orcas – and we have ourselves to blame
Entire pod of whales dies in worst mass stranding in Britain
Survivors from group of 55 mammals washed up on Isle of Lewis have to be euthanised after attempts to refloat them fail
There are more strandings, more corpses floating around because there are more whales. Not hunting them was both a good thing and also the reason why there are more. As apex – hmm, not necessarily apex predators but – mammals it’s really only starvation, stranding or old age that gets them.
It really is true that a – note, a – reason for more rotting whale corpses on the beaches is that there are more whales.
