Save Them -- 124 Dolphins DEAD












Federal officials are investigating what’s causing
an unusually high number of bottle nose dolphins
 to wash up on the East Coast this summer,
 with many of them showing up on beaches already
 badly decomposed.










The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
 says 124 dolphins have been found dead in
 the Mid-Atlantic region since early July, causing the federal
 agency to declare an unusual mortality event for the mammals.

















That declaration means an international group of scientists
 will have access to additional funding to study what’s causing the problem.
That investigation and analysis could take months or even years to finalize.




















Dead dolphins reported in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia.
The dolphins live in temperate and tropical waters worldwide. Virginia has 
experienced the largest increase in dolphin strandings this year, 
with more than 45 in July. That’s compared with a historic average of seven.
Throughout the region, officials say there are seven times as many 
Strandings compared with historic averages.
Dolphins of all ages have been affected. by Necropsies.
They  haven’t revealed a unifying pattern, although an infections
pathogen is considered a likely cause.Investigators plan to take blood
and tissue samples and test them for infectious agents such as viruses,
 bacteria and fungi.
I think they are so beautiful and sweet.




I hope that humans have not done this to them with polluting the ocean the way we do.
God Bless the Dolphins..
