On Sunday morning the 24th March, 20 whales beached themselves off the coast of Cape TownSadly, all of them diedAVA LOVE sent a crew to film this with one simple intention: to find out what happens to the whales in South Africa after they beach themselves on the shore. This is that story.

I for one cried at the news of those lost whales and wondered if more could have been done to save them. Its a natural reaction as we do find ourselves emotionally connected to whales. Whales beach themselves for a reason, usually related to human interference, and we need to understand this in order to try and prevent it in the future. If something positive can come from their loss, from the subsequent research that it allows, all is not wasted.
