Whale stranding

Every year up to 2,000 animals beach themselves. Although the majority of strandings result in death, they pose no threat to any of the 10 cetacean species which frequently suffer these mass beachings. People make huge efforts to save the whales that beach, keeping them wet and encouraging them to swim to safety. Hedgehog House photographers have been involved with a number of rescue attempts.
