Whales die after dynamite fishing in the Philippines

According to reports from the Philippines, at least 22 dwarf sperm whales have been killed by blasts from dynamite used by local fishermen.

The illegal fishing method on the island of Siargao has a devastating impact on other ocean wildlife and coral reefs.

Locals report that it is common practice for fishermen to use dynamite to stun dolphins and dwarf sperm whales before stabbing them.

The meat is then eaten or sold in markets.
