Default whale beachings, sonar, and earthquakes.

Last year (Dec 1 2004),whales were beached in Tasmania, and on 23rd, there was an 8.3 Richter Earquake.

Currently, there are dozens of beached whales.

I've read in a few science mags that high energy sonar can be the culprit in beachings, as it effectively deafens the poor creatures.
