Abstract

This paper presents a summary of 46 recent whale strandings involving 13 species and
497 animals, as well as six strandings not included in the previous summary by Guiler
(1978). Two new species are added to the 22 previously recorded for Tasmania. Details of
rescue operations, including an evaluation of current procedures, are given. Causes of
the stranding phenomenon are discussed with particular reference to events in Tasmania.
Results of pathological examinations are given, together with analyses of heavy metal and
pesticide residue in tissues.
