Whale & Dolphin News Reports for 2007

There are several different types of strandings, and scientists continue to research the causes of each. Some researchers point to the whale 'pod' social structure, which relies on one dominant whale. This phenomenon can sometimes result in a group of whales following a disoriented or sick whale onto shore. Others theorize that pods swim too close to the beach when hunting prey or evading predators and become trapped by low tides.

While, Humpback whale sightings are increasing along Australia's east coast, marine scientists believe this does not justify Japan's plans to resume hunting of the species. A Japanese kill of 50 humpbacks in their Southern Ocean feeding grounds could have a devastating effect on the small population. Photo: marinethemes.com/Kelvin Aitken
