Pilot whales are a species known for mass strandings. It is unclear as to why they do this, but it could have something to do with their strong social bonds. If one whale is sick or disoriented and beaches itself, perhaps the others follow suit for fear of leaving it behind.

Today we photo identified and tracked two groups of long-finned pilot whales in winds of 20-25 knots. It was definitely a challenge and we’re all exhausted, but it makes us appreciate the calm days even more. Here’s a photo of a long-finned pilot whale spyhopping in glassy waters just two days ago. s
