pod of whales near Guanaja

In an unusual occurrence, a pod of pilot whales has been spotted near Roatan's sister island, Guanaja. Sadly, it appears the leader of the pod is ill (or disoriented) and wants to beach itself, which usually results in the entire pod beaching and dying. Locals are trying to keep the whales off the beach while marine biologists can come to the scene from Roatan. Hopefully this will have a good outcome.
