337 whales wash up on Chilean coast in one of the largest mass strandings ever

More than 300 dead sei whales have been found washed up on a coast in southern Chile.

Scientists say the discovery of the 337 beached whales is one of the biggest strandings ever recorded.

Using aerial and satellite photography, biologist Vreni Haussermann and other scientists counted 305 bodies and 32 skeletons in the area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales in June.

Ms Haussermann told AFP it was “an apocalyptic sight”, adding that she expected to find more dead whales as the team had not yet reached every area.
