Hundreds Of Whales Stranded on New Zealand Beach Refloat and Return to Sea


More than 300 whales have escaped from a beach in New Zealand after becoming trapped on a shallow peninsula.

Two separate incidents at Farewell Spit, South Island, led to around 650 whales becoming stranded over the last few days.

The first, on 9 February, was the largest whale stranding on the mainland in New Zealand’s history, with around 400 whales becoming trapped.

Hundreds of volunteers flocked to the beach, helping to keep the whales cool and attempting to refloat them – succeeding in about 100 cases.
