How often do whales beach themselves?

    Its hard to say how often whales beach themselves because according to Darlent Ketten, a scientist and expoert on hearing in marine mammals, these beaching episodes seem to be increasing because beach areas are becoming popular, so more people are seeing and reporting these episodes. Plus we only hear about it if it involved a lot of individuals. I would guess it is not something that whales normally do because they are marine animals, so they naturally like to be in the water. A lot of these beaching episodes are caused by environmental factors such as pollution or humans like sonar communication between ships.
