With sick and dead dolphins washing up on shores around the world, experts are worried and a bit baffled.

If the people do not stand up to the Corporations that have bought out our Leaders in the Government that appoint the Monsanto Lobbyist to be head of the EPA, then our animals in the world will continue to die. They are the canary in the coal mines. Next will be the human being dropping like flies around the world, and some are from the droughts that many times are caused by manmade policies.

It does no good to put out the many brush fires around the world, one has to get the heads of these snakes. It would do all animal rights activists to understand how the political and Corporate structure works if they are ever going to get a handle on these things. Otherwise your own doom will come along too as no species can live forever with a planet and it's eco system out of balance.

Well perhaps the cockroaches, which for now we have 2 Koch-roaches in human form in the USA that are doing their best to destroy our planet. As with all coachroaches, shed some light and they scamper off.

A very good article on the negative impact that humans are having on the health of our oceans and how it is impacting the welfare of dolphins! “In many cases, the cause of stranding is unknown and difficult to discern,” said Barclay.
"What isn't in doubt is that human impacts on the ocean are hurting dolphins around the world."
Another great insight that this article talks about is the importance of electing leaders who understand the importance of the health of our oceans: “When voting or otherwise participating in the political process, insist on transparent and environmentally responsible decision-making,” said Ragen. “Inform your political leaders that you support fisheries and other human activities in the marine environment that are seeking to minimize their impacts and promote better ecosystem health, such as reductions or elimination of gillnet fisheries with bycatch problems.”

Apart from natural disease, the reason is man made, as usual. Oil pollution, the technology on shipping vessels now which interferes with the dolphins natural sonar, deep sea drilling and cables. Greed, cruelty and ignorance is killing many species that once were in abundance, very sad.
