The whales that were stranded on that beach were very unlucky and the eight whales that stranded after the first bunch were very lucky.

This is what they did to keep the whales alive 

They put towels, blankets any type of fabric on the whale but they make sure it doesn't cover the blow hole.

Then they get any type of container and then fill it up with water and keep on pouring it onto the the whale.

I agree that the possums should be killed because they are killing the world and making New Zealand not pretty, the opposite of what we want. But i also want the possums not to die because they are little critters so my idea is to get as many possums as we can and then ship them off to Australia because the possums are a protected and endangered species of Australia. so i think that it would be a very clever idea but just to get rid of them and keep them alive at the same time.
