Some 416 longfinned pilot whales have been stranded on the beach at Farewell Spit, New Zealand, prompting a large rescue effort. Many of the big sea mammals have died, but others have been coaxed back to the sea. This is reportedly the third largest whale incident since NZ started keeping records in the 19th Century.
