If you've been watching the news lately, you'll have noticed that there are a lot of mass strandings occurring around the world. This includes the nearly 100+ turtles that stranded off the coast of Cape Cod in November and the multitudes of dolphins and whales in NZ during the same month. But why is it that these animals are stranding? Is it a freak of nature or are they stranding because of something we're doing? For that matter, is there anything we can do to help stop it? In this week's Untamed Science video update, I attempt to explain what we know about the nature of marine animal strandings. What is really going on with cetacean and turtles that end up on the beaches?
