Efforts are currently underway to assist one of the largest mass beachings of whales on Farewell Spit, South Island, NZ.
Volunteers quickly gathered to keep whales calm, turn them right side up and await the incoming tides to assist them back to safe waters.
The cause of beached whales is unknown and could be attributed to illness, navigation or distress calls of one.
Desperate efforts are underway to save dozens of pilot whales still alive after hundreds stranded themselves on a New Zealand beach, in the third largest mass stranding in the country's history.
