AP: Unprecedented deaths along U.S. Pacific coast — Scientists: Mass die-offs of mammals, birds, fish… “No one’s sure what happened” — Gov’t wants Unusual Mortality Event declared — Samples “being tested for radionuclides from Fukushima” 

July 28, 2015

 

 

"AP, Jul 27, 2015 (emphasis added): Scientist says unexplained mass whale deaths off Alaska island may remain a mystery — Researchers may never solve the recent deaths of 18 endangered whales… 10 fin whales [and] eight humpback whales… scientists speculate the animals might have eaten something toxic… One test came back negative for one toxin that would be present in harmful algal blooms [Kate Wynne, a marine mammal specialist for the University of Alaska Sea Grant Program] said. “That’s my leading hypothesis,” Wynne said of an environmental toxin as a cause… “we never will find out what killed those whales, in my mind.” Other test results also are pending, however. A muscle-tissue sample is being tested forthe possibility of radionuclides from the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster…

 

The deaths are an unusual occurrence, Wynne said. She said she’snever heard of anything similar occurring among large baleen whales in the U.S. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration also islooking into the deaths of a slightly larger number of whales over a larger area. NOAA is requesting the deaths to be designated nationally as an unusual mortality event… NOAA spokeswoman Julie Speegle said. Along with the dead whales, dead birds including murres and shearwaters were reported… Tests showed the shearwaters had a high parasite count and were starving, Wynne said."

Cold kills one million head of cattle in Peru

August 11, 2015

 

 

"One lion killed in Zimbabwe has got a lot of attention in the Main Stream Media,” says reader Argiris Diamantis. “One million cattle dying from the cold gets no attention at all.

 

10 Aug 2015 –  “COLD KILLS ONE MILLION HEADS OF CATTLE“ reads the headline on Con Nuestro Peru.A catastrophe for camels, sheep and cattle in the country.The National Civil Defense Institute (INDECI) reported on 5 August that cold dead animals reach 912 300. At the time of writing that number could have risen to one million. Most are fine alpacas.

 

There are also 508,000 sick animals.This is a disaster unparalleled in our history.

 

Frightening is the situation created by the snowfall that hit especially the poor peasants.

Catastrophic Collapse of Saiga Antelope Leaves 120,000 Dead in a Month

Jennifer Baker

June 3, 2015

 

 

"Kazakhstan – An aerial survey conducted as part of a national monitoring program earlier this year estimated that the saiga antelope population numbered approximately 250,000 animals prior to this mass die-off, which has therefore halved the total population in about one month.

 

CGHe9HlW0AAd4Bf.jpg?iv=34

 

Preliminary analysis indicates that a combination of environmental and biological factors is contributing to this catastrophic event, which has seen four large birthing herds of the critically endangered Saiga antelope wiped out since mid-May this year. Primarily mothers and calves are among the carcasses; not a single animal has survived in the affected herds."

Official: “Thousands of Millions” of fish wash up dead in Alaska — “Piles of them… I have never seen anything like it… First time we’ve ever heard of this” (VIDEO)

August 18, 2014

 

 

"Alaska Dispatch News, Aug 13, 2015 (emphasis added): Warm water killing fish in Mat-Su and Anchorage… killing salmon in the Matanuska and Susitna valleys… Arctic char… have also gone belly up… “It will have some impact but in the long term for species that return multiple age classes, I wouldn’t characterize it as a disaster,” said Mike Bethe, Mat-Su area manager for the Habitat Division of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game… dead salmon have been found near the [Knik River's] weir… Dead fish have been turning up in other Mat-Su streams…

 

Juneau Empire, Aug 7, 2015: Herring mystery… dead baby herring in the algae-filled empty squares of the Statter Harbor breakwater. “It’s hard to know why, but there’s a lot of them,” Juneau-based marine ecologist Michelle Ridgway] said. “It’s fairly dramatic.”

 

KUCB, Aug 17, 2015: Dead herring… on Unalaska shorelines… “Hundreds of herring floating in the water,” Caleb Livingston [said] “But what really got my attention was the few that drifted on the beach were not being eaten by the eagles, or seagulls or terns.” Scientists have been receiving reports of dead and dying whales, birds and the small fish… “Their fins are deteriorated while their eyes are intact,” [Melissa Good, Univ. of Alaska Fairbanks] said. “I think it’s probably bait fish that got dumped.” Even so, Good said she will send herring… to an Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation lab…"

20th Aug 2015 Mass Deaths of Whales, Alaska

 

http://edition.cnn.com/2015/08/21/us/alaska-whale-deaths-investigation/

 

"Whales are dying at an alarming rate in the western Gulf of Alaska, and federal investigators say they're determined to find out why.

At least 30 large whales have died in Alaska since May, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said this week in declaring the first "unusual mortality event" for large whales ever declared in the state."

 

Is this caused by new OG contamination...?(゚Д゚) Or the result of the terraforming underwater way...

But then again, there are huge movements in alien factions near Russia at the moment and maybe one of the faction's underwater base got done in Alaska, leaving crap for the animals and water to cop....

Don't take ↑seriously. It's my speculation.

But one to ponder; out of millions and zillions of things to be able to imagine, why I came to those things to imagine about?(Big grin)

A giant glob of deadly algae is floating off the West Coast

 

From the air, the Pacific algal bloom doesn’t look like much of a threat: a wispy, brownish stream, snaking up along the West Coast. But it’s causing amnesia in birds, deadly seizures in sea lions, and a crippling decline in the West Coast shellfish industry. Here’s what you need to know about it, from what this bloom has to do with the drought to why these toxins could be a real threat to the homeless. What’s causing it? The culprits are single-celled, plant-like organisms called pseudo-nitzschia, a subset of the thousands of species of algae that produce more than 50 percent of the world’s oxygen through photosynthesis. They’re a hardy variety usually found in cool, shallow oceans, where they survive on light and dissolved nutrients, including silcates, nitrates, and phosphates. “They’re sort of like the dandelions of the sea,” says Vera Trainer, who manages the Marine Biotoxin Program at the Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Seattle.

California Reservoir Drains, Killing Thousands of Fish

Sept. 22, 2015

 

8856751_G.jpg

 

 

"Residents of Westwood, California are wondering how a nearby reservoir drained, killing most of the fish. Mountain Meadow Reservoir, also known as Walker Lake, is a shallow body of water that emptied during the weekend of September 12. More than a week later, thousands of dead fish are scattered across the muddy lake bed and in the creek below the dam.

56-year-old Eddy Bauer has lived near the lake his entire life. This is the first time he has seen it run dry.

"It's amazing how many people have come out to see the destruction," Bauer said. "My wife, for instance, was holding her nose, can't even stand the smell."

Walker Lake's water rights are owned by Pacific Gas and Electric Company. The dam allows them to use the water for hydroelectric power. Paul Moreno is a spokesperson for the company. He says they haven't used any of the water since March, when they determined there was not enough water to sustain the lake for the rest of the year. That is also when water flows, out of the lake, were reduced to the minimum requirement of four cubic feet per second, to keep fish alive, downstream."

Hundreds of Wildebeest Found Dead in Tanzania

from Sept. 28, 2015

 

"Hundreds of lifeless wildebeest were spotted this morning in the Mara River in northern Serengeti, Tanzania. The sad sight was captured on phone cameras by safari guides.

 

wildebeest-dead.jpg
 

The images below can only be described as tear-jerking. The pile of carcasses stretches into the distance and scavenger birds have already started circling the wildebeest. 

 

According to our source on the ground, the authorities have been contacted and the exact cause of death has yet to be confirmed. If the past is anything to go by, the wildebeest chose a crossing point that was too deep. "  animals have instinct, it seems they aren't covered by water, not buying that story, how about something wrong with the water, say from mining contamination?

Millions of B.C. salmon mysteriously ‘just disappear’ in troubling year

 

Although spawning salmon are still returning to British Columbia’s rivers – including some, surprisingly, to urban streams – early returns indicate another troubling year, despite some bright spots.

“It really is a mixed bag this year,” said Brian Riddell, president and CEO of the Pacific Salmon Foundation. “How the heck can we sum it up? I’d say it’s the good, the bad and the mysterious.”

There were good sockeye salmon returns to the Great Central Lake system on Vancouver Island and to the Nass River on the North Coast, he said.

 

But contrasting that were very poor returns on the Fraser River, where only about two million sockeye returned, far short of the more than six million predicted in preseason forecasts. Even more dramatic was the collapse of the pink salmon on the Fraser, with only about five million fish showing up when more than 14 million had been forecast.

 

The federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans declined to provide a spokesperson to talk about the salmon runs, saying it is too early to have firm numbers.

 

But Dr. Riddell said it is possible at this point to paint a broad picture, and the indication is that some stocks are in serious trouble.

One mystery, he said, is what happened to all those pink salmon that were supposed to return to the Fraser River.

337 Whales Beached in Largest Stranding Ever

November 20. 2015

Brian Clark Howard

 

The cause of the massive die-off, discovered in remote waters off Patagonia, Chile, is being investigated. Scientists say they are most likely sei whales, which are endangered.

 

01whale.ngsversion.1448053200262.adapt.1

 

 

The dead whales were first observed in Patagonia in June from the air, but now scientists are trying to figure out what killed them.

 

PHOTOGRAPH BY CAROLINA SIMON GUTSTEIN

 

"Scientists made a startling discovery on an observation flight over a remote fjord in southern Chile’s Patagonia: 337 dead whales. That is the biggest single whale stranding event known to science.

 

Because of the remoteness of the area and the roughness of the seas, scientists have not been able to examine the whales directly, but aerial and satellite photography identified 305 bodies and 32 skeletons in an area between the Gulf of Penas and Puerto Natales, toward the southern tip of the continent.

 

Many of the remains were in advanced states of decay so it’s unclear what species they are, says lead scientist Carolina Simon Gutstein of the Universidad de Chile and Consejo de Monumentos Nacionales in Santiago. But based on their size and location, they are probably sei whales, she says.

 

Endangered throughout its range, sei whales are large, bluish-gray baleen whales that filter the water to feed on krill and other small creatures. They can reach 64 feet (19.5 meters) long and 50 tons. Considered the fastest cetacean, sei whales can swim at speeds up to 31 miles (50 kilometers) per hour. Their lifespan is 50 to 70 years, and they are usually found in deep waters far from coastlines. The worldwide population is estimated at about 80,000."

Scientists baffled after thousands of dying starfish mysteriously wash up on a Queensland beach

Tour guide Rhett Ericsen-Miller stumbled upon the stranded sealife

Thousands of the starfish washed up on Queensland's Moreton Island

Scientists believe the mass stranding happened through natural causes

By Nelson Groom for Daily Mail Australia

Published: 02:11 EST, 26 November 2015 | Updated: 08:54 EST, 26 November 2015

Thousands of dying starfish have mysteriously washed up on an island in what has been deemed a rare natural phenomenon.

Tour guide Rhett Ericsen-Miller stumbled upon the stranded sealife with a tour group near Tangalooma Wrecks, a fleet of shipwrecks, in southeast Queensland's Moreton Island.

The video he uploaded on Facebook has amassed nearly 20 thousand views, while scientists are unsure of exactly what caused the mass stranding.

AP: “Alarming signs of oceanic distress” on West Coast — Record number of stranded seal pups, nearly 2,000% of normal levels — “Bags of skin and bones” — “In our 40 year history we’ve never seen this many animals” (VIDEO)

November 24, 2015

 

"Press Democrat, Nov 20, 2015 (emphasis added): Sausalito’s Marine Mammal Center sees record number of stranded seal pups — Another species of marine wildlife has begun turning up, emaciated and weak, in record numbers on the California coast in what continue to bealarming signs of oceanic distress. Unhealthy northern fur seal pups have been found stranded on beaches in record numbers, newly weaned and weighing little more than typical birth weight for the species, marine mammal experts said. “They’re adorable, but on the other hand they’re these little bags of skin and bones,” said Jeff Boehm, executive director of the Marine Mammal Center… [The center has] taken in 85 northern fur seals… more than double the previous record of 31 pups in 2006… The northern fur seal strandings are the latest in a string of alarming marine events. Experts have been working all year to address an “unusual mortality event” among California sea lions. In addition, wildlife rescue crews have been trying 

to rehabilitate a record number of the rarely seen and endangered Guadalupe fur seal pups."

Echidna plucked from Lake Echo as Tasmanian critters continue watery antics

By Ros Lehman

Updated yesterday at 10:17am

Days after a wombat was rescued from a lake in central Tasmania, another tale has emerged of an angler giving submerged wildlife a helping hand.

Nobby Clark said he plucked an echidna from the chilly waters of nearby Lake Echo when he spotted it swimming about 150 metres from shore, and heading further out.

Scientists find hundreds of dead sei whales in Patagonia, Chile

Posted yesterday at 9:33am

Sei whales beached at the Gulf of Penas, Chile

More than 300 whales have been found washed up in a remote inlet in Patagonia in southern Chile in one of the largest die-offs on record.

Vreni Haussermann of the Huinay Scientific Centre was one of the scientists who made the discovery.

"It was an apocalyptic sight. I'd never seen anything like it," Ms Haussermann said.

Scientists launched an expedition to count the animals after 20 sei whales were reported dead in April.

They were beached in an extremely remote region some 2,000 kilometres south of the capital, Santiago.

Another rare sea serpent has washed ashore in Southern California

December 20, 2015

Louis Sahagun

post-5-0-65047800-1450678296_thumb.jpg

 

A yellow bellied sea snake washed ashore in Huntington Beach on Dec. 13. It is the third sea snake ever recorded in Southern California and was probably driven north of its normal tropical habitat by El Niño     

 (Lisa Gonzalez/Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County)

 

"Wildlife rescuers have a new problem on their hands: for the second time in two months, a rare venomous sea serpent has washed up on a local beach hundreds of miles from its normal haunts.

 

The dead 27-inch-long male yellow bellied sea snake was discovered last week during a Surfrider Foundation coastal cleanup campaign in Huntington Beach.

 

A 2-foot-long yellow bellied sea snake was discovered in October after slithering onto Silver Strand State Beach in Ventura County. It died shortly after being taken to a local U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office.

 

The species, known to scientists as Pelamis platura, was first seen in Southern California in San Clemente in 1972 during an El Niño.

 

Greg Pauly, herpetological curator at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, believes the reptile in Huntington Beach may have been prompted to navigate north of its normal tropical habitat by the spread of abnormally warm ocean temperatures because of a strong El Niño this year."

Mystery as locals race to rescue 100+ beached whales found on Indian shoreline

January 12, 2016

 

 

"Locals are alarmed after more than 100 short-finned pilot whales washed up on Indian shores, less than 400 miles from the southern city of Chennai. Fishermen and authorities are working together to slowly return each surviving animal to the water.

 

The operation on Tuesday morning had rescuers trying to resuscitate the whales, each of which weighs about a ton, with at least 36 of the animals being taken back one by one to the sea, the Hindustan Times reports. The total number animals washed ashore was put at 120. Rescue efforts are ongoing at this time."

Thousands of birds found dead along Alaskan shoreline

 

As he walked on a beach in the western Prince William Sound town of Whittier, seabird biologist David Irons was startled when he saw hundreds of white lumps on the black rock beach.

They were dead seabirds, in what he would discover were likely record numbers, a sign the ecosystem was being troubled by abnormally warm ocean water.

 

The dead birds, common murres that had starved, were lined up and left where the tide had dropped them on the shore.

"We have never found close to 8,000 birds on a 1-mile long beach before," Irons said of his early January discovery. "It is an order of magnitude larger than any records that I am aware of."

Sperm whales wash up on English beach

 

Three sperm whales washed up on a beach in eastern England over the weekend, just a week after a dozen animals of the same species washed ashore on German and Dutch beaches.

The mammals, about 15 meters (48 feet) long, are believed to be part of the same pod as a young whale that died on Friday a few miles away.

West Coast bird die-off “is biggest ever recorded” — Stomachs completely empty — “Staggering… Alarming… Unheard of… Never seen anything like it”

 

Scientists think Gulf of Alaska seabird die-off is biggest ever recorded… The mass of dead seabirds that have washed up on Alaska beaches in past months is unprecedented in size, scope and duration, a federal biologist said… The staggering die-off… is a signal that something is awry in the Gulf of Alaska, said Heather Renner, supervisory wildlife biologist at the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge… It coincides with widespread deaths of other marine animals, from whales in the Gulf of Alaska to sea lions in California…
