Dolphins are dying en masse in Crimea

A massive death of dolphins is taking place in the temporarily occupied Crimea, but Russian environmental authorities claim there is no reason to worry. In March alone, more than fifty dolphin strandings were recorded, but the peak is expected in April and May.

One of the Crimean eco-activists, whose identity remains unknown for security reasons, told Krym.Realii. The activist received a response on this issue from the Russian environmental authority.

The Severtsov Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences claims that the population of all three species of dolphins in the Black Sea is in a "stable" state. According to Russian scientists, the deaths of dolphins are mostly due to "natural causes" and no independent mass strandings have "ever been recorded."

"Maybe this has never happened before, but now there is a full-scale war with all the negative consequences, including for dolphins. In the last week of March alone, more than 20 dead dolphins were found in Crimea. While Crimeans are sounding the alarm in social networks, the authorities do not react to what is happening, maybe because they know the real reason?" the activist said.
