Dead Dolphins and Pelicans in Peru

A thousand or more dolphins have been reported by Peruvian authorities to have died on the shore of Pimentel Beach in Chiclayo, Peru, since January 2012.
 
Ninety percent were long-beaked common dolphins, while others were Burmeister porpoises.Then about 1,800 pelicans and cormorants were found dead in a 100-mile stretch of coastline between Punta Negra in Piura and San Jose Creek in Lambayeque.
 
Coast Guard official Cesar Villaneuva says in 25 years, he has never seen so many dead and dying pelicans on the beach. Lab tests in May might confirm if a virus has killed the dolphins.
 
On this same stretch of beach since mid-January, some 1,000 long-beaked common dolphins
and a few Burmeister porpoises have been found dead - the exact cause
still a mystery.
