Whales stranded in New Zealand's Golden Bay

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) More than 20 volunteers tried to save a pod of 12 whales stranded at New Zealand's Golden Bay on Tuesday (January 14). They hope the whales will be able to swim back to sea when the tide is high enough. One whale had earlier died from over heating, said New Zealand media. The New Zealand Department of Conservation fears that about more 50 whales from the same pod, still swimming off shore, may become stranded too, said Television New Zealand. The area is known to be one of the worst in the world for whales to get beached, said New Zealand media. "Imagine when a whale is over a such big flat expansive sand. It's difficult for it to navigate to know which way's out and which way's in," said Ranger Mike Ogle. Volunteers will return to the area on Wednesday (January 15) if the whales do not refloat on Tuesday's high tide.
