Only two whales are still alive after a mass beaching of sperm whales on a remote island off north-west Tasmania.
A pod of about 50 beached themselves on Perkins Island on Thursday night.
Marine biologists and Tasmanian Parks & Wildlife staff spent Friday on the island trying to save the seven still alive.
However, two died on Friday afternoon and another three overnight.
More than 150 whales died in a mass beaching at Sandy Cape, also in north-west Tasmania, in November last year.
