Gulf Spill Cause of Dolphin Deaths?
“Scientists are trying to determine whether there’s a link between last year’s Gulf of Mexico oil spill and a spike in dolphin deaths along the Gulf Coast. Sixty-seven bottlenose dolphins have washed up on Gulf beaches over the past few weeks. More than half — 35 — are babies.”
"What we do know is that dolphins can be very good sentinels for what’s happening in our oceans and even what’s happening in our bodies," Bossart adds.”
