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.

The meat is then eaten or sold in markets.
