Since the beginning of the year, over 120 dolphins have stranded on Cape Cod. I love to read the Cape Cod paper online everyday, but it is really heartbreaking to see that the strandings keep continuing.
IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare) and many volunteers are doing an amazing job to save as many dolphins as they can. And several of the released dolphins have headed out to deep water and more have been recorded up by the Maine coast.
There are several possible theories regarding this mass stranding, and scientists will continue to study the situation. There most likely are several factors that are contributing to the stranding of these beautiful animals that live in a sea of man-made pollution. I hope NSTAR is taking note and re-evaluating their position of spraying chemicals needlessly and irresponsibly around their power lines.
