20 dead sei whales washed up off Chile

A group of scientists conducting research in a coastal area of southern Chile have discovered 20 dead sei whales washed up on rocks.

The whales were found on the shoreline north of the Gulf of Penas and the cause of death is now being investigated. According to reports, none of the whales, showed signs of any injury.
