Do scientists have any idea what causes whales to beach themselves?

    Statistically, scientists can determine the cause of whales beaching themselves around 50% of the times. These causes include but are not limited to injury suffered from boats, leaving the whale in poor condition, shark attacks on whales have also been noticed and suspected to be a cause, some speculate that magnetic anomalies are to blame. Military sonar was also pointed to as a possible cause but hasn’t been scientifically proved. In general, though, besides these to some extent obvious reasons, scientists are still puzzled by the phenomenon.
