Over the past two days, 650 pilot whales stranded themselves on the Farewell Spit of South Island in New Zealand. More than 200 whales have managed to refloat themselves and swim away, while volunteers managed to save another 17 whales at high tide.


About 350 whales have died, including 20 that were euthanized. Another 100 have been refloated by volunteers and more than 200 have swum away unassisted.

Hundreds of volunteers from farmers to tourists have spent days at the beach dousing the whales with buckets of water to keep them cool and trying to refloat them.
