More than 400 black dolphins-Blackfish (cue ball) beached on the shore of the southern island of New Zealand. Most of the animals died, but volunteers participating in a large-scale rescue operation, managed to refloat about 100 dolphins. Rescued cetaceans remain in the Bay, as rescuers on boats trying to point them in the right direction, so they swam to the open sea.
It is noted that we are talking about one of the most massive incidents of deaths of whales or dolphins in New Zealand.
New Zealand is often a place where whales and dolphins beaching. Until now scientists can not give an exact answer, what could be the reason for such mass suicides of cetaceans that occur from time to time in different parts of the globe. As a rule, if one Dolphin is thrown ashore, the rest of the pack trying to help him and eventually share his fate.
