Dozens of short-finned pilot whales have been stranded in shallow water off Florida's Everglades National Park for about two days now, and while their survival has been perceived as bleak, about 35 people are trying to save them.
Veterinarians, biologists among others, are revving boat engines and pipe noises to attempt to herd whales back out into deeper waters, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
The NOAA Fish Southeast region's Twitter account, NOAA Fish Southeast, has the latest updates on the stranded pilot whales in Everglades.
Their latest tweet was at about 8:30 a.m. (Pac Standard Time): "Latest info - USCG reporting 2 pods of whales off Plover Key - 15-20 whales in 12 feet of water moving offshore."
The team also announced there will be a live update at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
