Volunteers from WWF Indonesia, the Indonesian government, and Indonesian Navy worked together to float the whales back to sea. Beached whales can normally only survive a day or two. Out of the ten, six were successfully rescued and released back to the sea—four others did not survive. It’s unclear why whales beach themselves, but it may be due to sickness, getting lost, confusion from acoustic interference, or as a sign of solidarity with a stranded pod member.

    ok, they try to save the whales. i witnessed the opposite in 2001: a group of porpoise (about 30) stranded at the shore of wahai. i joined the people at the shore, because i thought they would try to save the animals.
    but they slaughterd the poor creatures by cutting their heads off.

    Sign of Solidarity? Wow!

  • A P on November 21, 2017

    It wasn't only the WWF, government, and the Navy involved, but also the local citizens living at the beach. This news was everywhere on the TV for a few days. Indonesians really love to work together if something happens and they know they can also participate. Hope it won't happen again in the future 🙂

    Oh no!

  • Alejandro Carpio on November 21, 2017

    Wow it’s amazing

  • T on November 21, 2017

    ¿Porqué pasará?¿Puede ser que los barcos que exportan lo que compramos y sonares para aprender de ellos o solo para explorar nuestra mente tan preguntona?

  • Joao Serdoura on November 21, 2017

  • Cho Vue on November 21, 2017

    Whales beach themselves in an effort to escape noise pollution. Watch "sonic sea" to learn more. A great documentary if you have the time.

  • Jason C on November 21, 2017

    Lol this remind me of the game Life is strange :0

  • Taz Begum on November 21, 2017

    It's very upsetting to see that so much effort arrives in order to save whales but when refugees show up at borders or washed up at sea, they are treated with hostility and harshness 😔
    Where are the government's priorities nowadays?

  • Andi Syarif on November 21, 2017

    Indonesia sangat menyayangi paus.

  • Abhimanyu Karnatak on November 21, 2017

    its because our ocean is way too loud for them there ears are very very sensitive they also depend on them to navigate the vast ocean as the visibilty is very low in sea . many whales stranded have evidence of brain damages from all that noise . https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/jun/14/stranded-whales-ocean-navy-sonars

  • Fil Lamo on November 22, 2017

    Finally Indonesian government, the WWF, and the Military did something useful and something good. I bet most people there where civilian volunteers but all well the diffrent organisation hat the technical devices and expertise.

  • Lord of Exaggeration on November 22, 2017

    Before 50k view

  • Chris J on November 22, 2017

    You're angry at Trump for pushing mexicans back to their place, but you praise these guys for doing the same to the whales? WTF!!!

  • イカくコ:彡 on November 22, 2017

  • Joe Howarth on February 24, 2020

    Don’t think there’s a more uplifting thing to watch.
    As the only technologically advanced species on the planet, it should be man’s responsibility to take care of the animals and preserve them
