An unprecedented crisis along the East Coast: dolphins dying by the hundreds. A new report shows the die-off is now the worst in history. It’s caused by a virus similar to measles with no cure and no vaccine.
Hundreds of dead dolphins have washed ashore on the Chesapeake Bay and down the East Coast. Now scientists know what may be causing it: a dangerous virus that could spread even further.
Another dying dolphin has been found in Virginia waters.
Dolphins up and down the East Coast are dying by the dozens. Even more have been found washed up from the Chesapeake Bay. It’s the deadliest summer for dolphins since the 1980s!
It’s an alarming trend. More than 100 dead dolphins have washed up on beaches up and down the East Coast, including here in Maryland.
