Temat: Damaged ship leaks over 200 tons of oil
An article from WDCS Devon dolphin deaths WDCS is concerned at the environmental disaster threatened by cargo ship, MSC Napoli which has been grounded a mile off the Devon coast. The ... that 3 dead dolphins have come ashore in the time since the MSC Napoli was grounded. There has been speculation over the cause of these animalsĂ˘ÂÂ deaths, and their potential link to the MSC Napoli. WDCS International Director of Science, Mark Simmonds said, Ă˘ÂÂThe recent dolphin deaths at Branscombe Beach highlight the need to have such events properly investigated. There is a possibility that the dolphins which have washed up were poisoned by oil or hazardous chemicals, but unfortunately, this is also the time of year when we see large numbers of dolphins, particularly common dolphins, dying as a result of entanglement in fishing nets, and ending up the victim of fisheries bycatch.Ă˘ÂÂ Mark continued, Ă˘ÂÂWithout a post mortem examination, it is impossible to know why these animals died. We are very concerned about the governmentĂ˘ÂÂs recent decision to cut the number of investigations into the cause of death of dolphins that strand on UK shores.Ă˘ÂÂ WDCS has condemned the GovernmentĂ˘ÂÂs decision to reduce the budget allocated to investigating the cause of dolphin and porpoise deaths, limiting the number of animals that will be examined at ... many of these deaths still not identified, and with new threats such as the impact of military noise still being revealed by these examinations, this is not a time for cut-backsĂ˘ÂÂ...
Temat: Noisy oceans 'threaten sea life'
Noisy oceans 'threaten sea life' Increasing noise pollution in the world's oceans is threatening the survival of whales and dolphins, a UN-backed conference has heard. Experts say the noises sea creatures use to communicate are being drowned out by noises from commercial shipping, new military sonar and climate change. They become disoriented, cannot find mates or food and behave differently, scientists say. ... the increasing noise in oceans, Mark Simmonds from the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society said: "Call it a cocktail-party effect: you have to speak louder and louder until no-one can hear each other anymore." He said there were a growing number of cases where the stranding of whales and dolphin could be linked to sound pollution. In some cases, the mammals had tissue damage similar to divers who surface too quickly, leading scientists to suggest that they were scared by military sonar or seismic testing, and surfaced beyond their physical limits, he added....

Temat: Mass dolphin stranding in Cornwall, UK
Mass dolphin stranding in Cornwall, UK On 9 June rescuers rushed to the aid of scores of dolphins at Porth Creek near Portscatho, Cornwall. Classed as the largest mass stranding of dolphins since 1981 when pilot whales were beached on the east coast, rescuers are still doing all they can to ensure no more animals strand. Local Coastguards were first alerted to the problem after a visitor at a nearby guest house noticed a flailing dolphin that appeared to have beached itself in Porth Creek. When they arrived to launch the rescue operation, many more dolphins had become stranded. It is not known what has caused this latest stranding but it is very unusual for striped dolphins to be so close inshore as they are pelagic dolphins, preferring deeper water and are rarely found in coastal areas. Some of the strandings however also included common dolphins. Many animals have died but quite a few have been saved and refloated back out to the sea which is a very positive sign. Initial post-mortem examinations of some of the dead dolphins found have so far revealed no clues ... coastline, there are various reasons to why the animals got themselves into difficulty Ă˘ÂÂ one of which could be military sonar. However it could take months before the reason is confirmed. ... with dead dolphins, both, young and old - all appearing at an initial glance to have been in good health - nothing prepares you. Whilst all involved in the rescue operation consol ourselves with the fact that many were successfully rescued and led out to open water, nothing can remove the constant questioning.

Perhaps we will never know, however, I for one am hoping that we are able to establish ... The Royal Navy has confirmed it was conducting a live firing exercise and using sonar, hours before many of the dolphins beached themselves. The exercises involved surface ships and submarines in...

Sound is incredibly important to whales and dolphins, and there are growing concerns from scientists, governments and conservation organisations over the effect powerful military sonar and other industrial noise could be having on marine wildlife.

In the report, 13 cases of strandings of whales and dolphins were identified to have a possible link to a specific noise, mostly from naval vessels. Evidence gathered from post-mortems carried out on a number of whales that stranded during military exercises in the Canary Islands four years ago indicated the presence of gas bubbles in the animalsĂ˘ÂÂ organs, which scientists believe could be linked to powerful military sonar. Such evidence has been supported in more recent times by other similar strandings.
