Rescuers have been forced to abandon efforts to save around 150 melon-headed whales that became stranded on a beach in Hokota, Japan.
Only three of the animals that had beached have been saved!
The rest of the melon-headed whales – a member of the dolphin family usually found in the deep ocean – had either died or were dying.
The pod was stretched out along a roughly 10-kilometre-long stretch of beach!
Did they get lost?
The reason for the beaching is but the dolphins might have got lost. Or maybe it is too noisy down there!
