Winter Learning Journey-Swimming with the sharks-12

For this activity I had to read about a place called Farewell Spit. It has been in the news based on some whales accidentally swam into the spit and got stuck on the beach. They didn't have enough time to sim out because the water was very shallow. The local people tried to save them but unfortunately sadly many of them died.As you can see the local people did this to save them:

  • Put wet towels/clothes on them
  • Pour buckets of water on them

  • The local people added bowls,water bottles, chilly bins, pots with water and poured them over the dead whales.


  1. Hi Mele
    It's really sad how the whales died. Do you think that the whales trusted the locals when the locals tried to keep them alive?
    Great job on explaining what they did

  2. Hi Mele,
    I like that you put what the local people tried to do to save the whales. Keep it up!

  3. Hi Mele. It's sad to hear whales dying from this. Hopefully what locals are doing is enough to save them. Keep on working hard.

  4. Hello Mele
    It was very nice of the local people to try and help the whales. I wish all of the whales could have been saved. Keep up the amazing work.

  5. Hello Mele, it is sad how the whales are dying but it is great to see that people in the community are trying their best to save them. Keep up the great work.
