No one really knows why pods of whales spontaneously drive themselves aground.

Although solitary endangered blue whales are rarely victims of sonar stranding, this does not mean that they are unaffected by high intensity sonar. 'We wanted to understand better what the common behavioural responses are in blue whales when they are exposed to [sonar]', says Brandon Southall from the University of California, Santa Cruz, USA.
