I have read that the reasons whales beach is because, under normal circumstances, they use underwater sound to find mates, food and for communication. Humans have made the oceans so noisy with naval sonar, looking and drilling for oil etc., that it sometimes becomes unbearable for these sound sensitive creatures to cope. We have to re-think our impact everywhere and lessen it significantly.
