Whales stranded off Florida coast find deep water

Scientists issued a call for help recently, asking the public to help find 29 missing pilot whales that had been stranded off the coast of Florida. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the 29 missing whales were among the 51 pilot whales who were originally stranded near the Everglades last week.

Scientists originally believed the majority of the whales their way back to the sea, however they now say they are unable to locate 29 of them and are are asking for the public's help.

Plus, whales and dolphins on the other side of the world are in grave danger.  A reported 20,000 dolphins are killed each year in Japan, many of them stabbed for meat.  Whales are similarly rounded up and killed.

Jane speaks to Simone Reyes, animal rights activist and Sea Shepherd Cove Guardian, about this senseless slaughter.

Anyone who spots the whales in the waters off southern Florida are asked to call 877-WHALE-HELP.
