At different times, large whales and dolphins can be seen flocking to the beach.  Hundreds of such whales were recently rescued by the Navy and local fishermen in Sri Lanka.  Over 100 blue whales have been saved after being stranded in Sri Lanka’s southwest coast.

On other hand, the bodies of more than 100 whales and dolphins were recovered in New Zealand today. This is the case in Chatham Island, 400 km from the east coast of New Zealand.  Most of the pilot whales and dolphins are said to have been trapped there since Sunday.

A total of Ninety six pilots whales and bottle nose dolphins, have been found, according to the New Zealand Department of Defense.  As many as 26 more dolphins are still alive, and efforts are underway to bring them back into the sea. But their body is weak.  However, officials believe the fish may have come ashore and stranded to be dead out of fear of the sea’s bad condition and the Great White Shark.

There are many reasons why whales and dolphins, especially in the coastal areas, may be caught on the beach.  The whales and dolphins leave the golden oval.  In this deep water, they can learn about large rocks or terrain that are coming through.  But sometimes the fear of big fish, the lack of water, interferes with the location.  As a result, whales and dolphins get stuck in dry places or on the beach.  There are also instances of another team coming to rescue them after one or two whales were caught.  More than 300 whales die each year on the island of New Zealand.
