30 dead dolphins found on a beach in northwest Mexico

(ORDO NEWS) — At least 30 common short-beaked dolphins have been found dead in the Gulf of California, or Sea of ​​Cortez, off the coast of Mexico’s northwestern state of Baja California Sur, authorities said.

Following the announcement, environmental authorities and other civil society organizations sent representatives to a site just north of the state capital, La Paz, where Delphinus capensis, the world’s most widespread dolphin, was found dead on Wednesday and Thursday.

Officials from the Federal Environmental Protection Agency (Profepa), in coordination with the Baja California Sur Marine Mammal Waste Control Network, counted the number of dolphins found dead along the beaches and eventually retrieved several more dead ones that had been swimming near the shore.

In addition, they took biological samples from the bodies for analysis to determine the cause of death.
