Hi Sarah and everybody,

Following the dolphins' mass mortality in Peru, there is also an article posted in environmental health news at the following link

 Thousands of dolphins may have died in Peru's massive die-off; cause could remain mystery  

http://www.environmentalhealthnews.org/ehs/news/2012/perus-dolphin-die-off

A combination of anthropogenic and natural factors may be conspiring against the survival of dolphins off Peru and causing the massive die off...

Cheers

Juan Jose Alava

Subject: [MARMAM] Information on recent Mass Stranding in Peru
 

 
Is there any information on the results of investigations that Peruvian Scientists are carrying out on the recent  mass stranding there of common dolphin and Burmeisters porpoises?
  
There is this article:
  
http://digitaljournal.com/article/325075
  
But according to the NHM website the results were leading towards a potential epidemic outbreak of morbillivirus brucella.
Kind regards,
