Why are hundreds of dead dolphins washing up on French beaches? – The Local

Since the start of 2019, up to 600 dolphins have washed up on beaches along France’s Atlantic coast. According to two different surveys, the numbers of carcasses found this year is between 400 and 600 – but even the lower estimate is higher than any previous year at the same period. While dead dolphins wash up on beaches in France each year scientists say the situation is alarming. “If you compare these figures to last year’s over the same period, there are already more dead dolphins that the previous years, which were already record years,” said researcher Hélène Peltier from the Pelagis marine life observatory which carries out surveys.
