Inland whales / 内陸の鯨

All my efforts to see whales, and some swim right past me. Right now, there are a pair of humpback whales up near Sacramento. This is more than 70 miles inland from the sea.

The whales are injured. Hopefully they can be lead back to the sea and recover. In 1985, another humpback, nicknamed Humphrey, did come inland, though not as far, and was lead back to sea and has been seen alive since.

They might have sought a safe place to get recovered and followed the river. Hope they can find a way back to the sea safely.
Can people do anything to help them to go back? I guess if they can do so without any human helps, it would be much better, but sometimes human intervention can be helpful to change the situation.

Yes, they are trying to coax the whales out by playing sounds of other whales eating. They have tried it for 2 days now, but it hasn't worked yet. Here is an article on what they are doing:
