From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 24 September 2020

Despite the risk of Great White Sharks looking for a quick meal, rescuers have braved the Tasmanian waters to save over 450 pilot whales that have stranded in the harbour.

Around 380 whales have died. This is the largest whale stranding in Tasmania on record.
