Scientists mystified by largest dolphin stranding in northeast U.S. in 20 years

February 6, 2012MASSACHUSETTSNearly 130 dolphins have beached themselves on Cape Cod in the last three weeks, with 92 dying in what’s become “the single largest stranding” in at least two decades in the Northeast, the International Fund for Animal Welfare reported Monday. On Sunday, four more dolphins were stranded along Cape Cod’s hook-shaped peninsula and were quickly helped back to sea. The Massachusetts peninsula sees many dolphin strandings each year, but the 129 since Jan. 12 is typically about what rescuers see over an entire year, based on records that go back to 1999, IFAW marine mammal rescue manager Katie Moore told msnbc.com. “This event started on the 12th and is still continuing,” she added at a press conference on Monday, noting that rescuers from IFAW and other stranding networks were deployed in “anticipation of more dolphins coming in this afternoon.” Most of the dolphins have appeared to be in good health, adding to the mystery of why so many have come ashore. Dolphins are known to strand in groups due to their tight social structure, but given the large numbers this year, other factors such as weather and tides are being investigated. “I don’t know,” Moore said when asked about causes. “It pains me to say those three words.” Asked if climate change might be a factor, Moore said she couldn’t rule that out or in. As for the possibility of sonar or other human-made sounds disrupting the dolphins, she said no known sources existed inside Cape Cod. Initial results of studies on nine of the dead dolphins “do not indicate any pattern,” she noted. This stranding “is not only out of the ordinary,” she said, “but it takes a huge toll on our resources. It’s hard labor.” -MSNBC

    Could it be that dolphins as well as other sea creatures base their sense of direction off the megnetic field lines of the earth in the same way that most birds do? Well, ergo… the megnetics of the earth are shifting and changing as the poles shift. Due to the shifting magnetic field lines this inturn is confusing them because they are accustomed to navigating using the magnetic field lines they know. So now as they navigate using this method they find theselves landing in places that end up being not what they expected…? Does anyone agree that this is a plausable explanation for not only these landings/beachings but also the many others that are occuring across the globe?

      The recent acceleration of the magnetic north pole’s migration towards Siberia from 15 km per year to 55 km per year, since the late 1990’s, is creating a compendium of unforeseen problems for the planet including disorientation to true magnetic north for migratory animals and birds. Perhaps, even more unsettling is the possibility that the slippage of the magnetic north pole towards Siberia is also dragging the jet stream down further into Russia and across Eastern Europe. If this is what indeed is happening, we have a problem, because we’re now in a period where the planet’s polarity reversal has suddenly accelerated for reasons unknown and the effect would be climatic extremities traumatizing Europe and parts of Asia as would now appear to be the case with a lopsided jetstream, centered mostly over Russia and Europe, which would inundate Alaska and northwestern Canada with record lows and snowfall while sparing most of North America of harsh winter conditions while putting Europe through hellish winters and partial glaciations. Aside, from a pole-shift, this would be the sole determinant factor that would account for periods of progressive glacial Ice Ages in the planet’s geological past.

      I think the question about magnetic fields certainly deserves serious investigation. Birds, as mentioned, use it for navigation. I also wonder about underwater seismic activity- small frequent tremors or quakes- this is known to affect the dolphins. There is of course also seismic activity if any drilling for oil research is being done. The area where you find the sonar or seismic activity can be very far from the beaching sites, so one would have to investigate a huge radius. It could also be a Combination of different factors which affect them, rather than one isolated cause. But it the beachings have rapidly escalated over the past 50 years: what has changed during that time in the environment? Perhaps tinvestigting that could help with the answers?

    Check the electromagnetic field in the area. It is likely that there was/is an anomoly, since the dolphin relies on the earth’s electromagnetic field to navigate. If the field goes weak, they get disoriented. Also, if the field goes weak, it indicates the conditions are right for a seismic shift. This, combined with full moon…..I’m just sayin’……

      Aside from the obvious beaching and dying of these marine animals; white-nose syndrome is wiping out bats. Bats represent 1/4 of all mammals on the planet. The whales are dying, also mammals, humans are mammals and may be the next link in the chain to either destroy themselves or follow the trail of extinction which is now assaulting the top of the food-chain.

    ..:: “On a recent trip to the U.S. University of Southern Maine in Portland, Dr John Wise shared his new research into the way toxic industrial contaminants from the chemical industry are entering into dolphins and whales worldwide.

    He explained how industrial waste chemicals, like PCBs, mercury and chromium, just a few of the deadly carcinogens, which induce lung cancers in humans, are routinely released from chemical processing plants around the world.

    While the whales are traveling on their migratory routes, which pass near by industrial plants on the coast, and whales even inhale and absorb the industrial chemicals from the air because they breathe so deeply at the Ocean’s surface.

    The result is causing many devastating changes to the immune system, fertility, damaging the DNA, and creating a multitude of birth defects among whales, similar to autism and Down’s syndrome in humans.

    In another recent and tragic case, a group of seven sperm whales stranded themselves on a Mediterranean beach. There they were unable to feed on squid. And since whales get their liquid from their food, they began to dehydrate.

    As their starving bodies began to break down the stored fat — unleashing a deadly toxic effect. The pollutants absorbed from the industrial waste dumped into rivers/oceans for decades has been deposited in the whale’s fat, and the toxic chemicals were released back into the whales blood circulation with even more toxic effects.

    These industrial chemicals include heavy metals such as mercury, lead and cadmium, and organochlorines like PCBs and DDTs, even fire-retardants used on modern carpets, clothes, plastics and household furnishings.

    In effect, the dolphins, whales (and humans) are being poisoned by our time saving modern industrial practice of dumping of chemicals into rivers worldwide (instead of recycling). When it’s all too late, and the whales have become fatally weakened, they often beach themselves together on the shore, demonstrating their human-like loyalty to each other, for which their species is renowned.

    • Hello Sue,
      I find these words to be extremely moving, I am not of Chief Seattles people, but I am of the Mvscogee Nation in Oklahoma. Back in November of 2011, I experienced an event that “shook me up.” Well, I started having dreams and “sensations” i guess you could call them that…of a great many of us dying because of the waters being polluted, the grounds and waters turned black and I saw deer falling over, just collapsing, and i’m standing in the middle of it all, balling my eyes out and yelling, Well I awoke and i immediately had the feeling and urge to start writing about the situation i felt and saw, The following weeks i was just extremely emotional and sensitive to certain feelings, I started seeking answers and of course still am, but i started searching for books and websites, doctors opinions, to give me some insight on what was going on with me, because I have noticed this change in me, my thoughts, actions, awareness..seeing signs, at first i thought i was going crazy, lol, (the ruling is still out on that one) but i’ve read things like Chakras and vibrations, and how the cleansing process has begun and purification. Well, at first none of this stuff meant anything to me, until i started scanning headlines and world news, and i was stunned by all the world events..now, i realize that I too am going through the same thing, AMAZING feelings that i’ve been having, and spiritual movements, and such, but These words have been echoing in my head the past few days…I see now the urgency of altering our ways and going back to the old ways of living, (Hard, yes! but necessary!) these ways of draining the Grandmother, and scaring her face are not the ways of the people, Thank you sister for the words of wisdom! Now in conclusion to all these ramblings, i’ve been learning old ways, “animal medicine” Our ancestors used animals to learn about the Grandmother and to live a healthy balanced life with all things, one thing that stuck out in this headline was the woman being quoted on how the dolphins are a “tight social structure” and how they all are ending up the same way and I immediately read this as a warning (another sign) that we are doing the same thing, As humans we too are doing the same thing, running ashore, so to speak, and living beyond our means and taking the entire village with us when we wreck, Now these dolphins are warning us on the impending damages that lay ahead of us, and i totally agree with you on the “altering our ways”!! much love sister, AHO and MVTO! My heart isn’t afraid anymore, but i’m ready for this change! even if that means no more internet..

Although this has been in the process for a very long time..

      its scary easy to make a direct link between all the solar flare and earth quake activity and mass deaths of animals world wide. actually if you research almost all the animals being affected are scientifically proven to rely on some sort of navigation system to get from a to b. you notice its not normal animals that use other means to migrate that are dying off in mass situations so we really can’t point the finger at humans for this one. it is actually not our fault..for once.

      what actually worry’s me is not that there’s so many dying so often due to these flares and earth quakes, its that there may not be enough animals to sustain such large loss’s since we have no idea how long this whole thing is going to last and just how severe the mass deaths can become. Earth isn’t overflowing with animals as is anything like this en mass could be catastrophic to certain species. Not to mention everything else that is killing them in the meantime it just adds so much more pressure to already struggling animal populations.

I grew up on Cape Cod and believe me I’m not trying to belittle anything that has been said here since I have my own opinion but this has been happening since I can remember. I think we’ve only started hearing about it because there was no animal (sealife) rescue a long time ago and animal rights made it possible for these things to be national news. Dolphins use echo location and sonar to find their way and since the bay on the Cape is shaped like a horse shoe I believe this might be intentional. The dolphins could easily find their way out (it’s a huge opening) but they beach themselves, I think the good samaritans may be doing more harm than good when they try to get them back into the water. G-d works in mysterious ways and if He has to sacrifice a few dolphins to get us to pay attention to other signs well that might be the case.

What they have in common that is really important. Herewith an illustration using the recent Peruvian strandings as example: Note that although the tremor was measured in Northern Peru at 4.8 it could arguably have been felt elsewhere within a 1,000 km radius & could even have been stronger there but not measured. Unmeasured tremors far away could have also even started days before..Also note that there were drilling explorations in the arctic at the time of the strandings, so the boats were in the area (with sonar), and apparently some of the sardines were perhaps poisonous..We start to suspect what really happened with the dolphin strandings, don’t we?

    SONAR??? Methinks YES! The Similarities Between Two Common Dolphins’ Mass Stranding Events: Cornwall, UK (2008) and Cape Cod, USA (2012)

    http://strandednomore.wordpress.com/2012/02/08/the-similarities-between-two-common-dolphins-mass-stranding-events-cornwall-uk-2008-and-cape-cod-usa-2012/#comment-12

    As the unusual mass stranding of common dolphins at Cape Cod continues, it is perhaps pertinent to revisit another, quite similar mass stranding of common dolphins in Cornwall, UK in 2008.

    The UK event was as unusual as the Cape Cod one because it involved scores of dolphins stranded in a short period of time compared to average stranding numbers during other months of the same year. 26 dolphins died in that event, while during other months the numbers of stranded dolphins ranged from 1 to 4. Luckily the Cornwall event was very thoroughly investigated.

    As far as numbers go, here is a part of report `In total, approximately 40 common dolphins stranded or attempted to strand alive at various locations: Porth Creek (24 dead, one stranded/euthanized, approximately seven refloated), Gillan Creek (five to seven refloated), Place (one refloated) and Trelissick (one stranded/euthanized). Over the course of the day, over 70 animals are believed to have been guided out to sea by rescuers. One additional dead dolphin was reported on 11th June, although the species was unconfirmed and the body was not recovered.`

    Dolphins were also seen milling close to shore prior to the onset of the mass stranding event.

    In Cornwall event it was very quickly established that the Royal Navy was doing a whole bunch of activities in the area, including Medium Range sonar, submarine activities, aircraft activities, explosions, etc. The report on Cornwall event concluded that “The link to the naval exercise, while not proven, seemed the most plausible explanation for the adverse behaviour of the dolphins and is the most likely trigger for the mass stranding event.”

    So what are the similarities (and differences) between the Cape Cod event and Cornwall event?

    Similarities:

    1. Both events involved common dolphins.

    2. Both events were highly unusual in regard to overall stranding numbers in the area over the year.

    3. Dolphins did not strand at once altogether in the same area, but were found in various areas.

    4. Dolphins were seemingly in good shape, although detailed necropsy data is pending to compare both events in detail.

    5. Some animals were found alive, while other were found dead.

    6. Some animals were successfully rescued, refloated and released.

    7. Some animals refused to leave and restranded.

    Differences

    1. Number of dolphins, bigger mass stranding in Cape Cod.

    2. Duration of the event, Cape Cod event has been ongoing over 28 days

    3. Dolphins in Cornwell stranded in river and a creek.

    The Navy Connection

    1. In Cornwall event the Navy connection was well established, but not proven 100 %

    2. In Cape Cod event nobody connects the Navy to the event even though it is known that Naval exercises COMPTUEX have been and possibly still ongoing somewhere in Atlantic Ocean.

    What needs to happen:

    1. Just like in case of Cornwall event, rescues, animal activism groups, NOAA, NMFS should request the information from the Navy in regard to their activities in immediate and surrounding areas prior, during and after Jan. 12, 2012. We cannot ignore similarities between Cornwall event and Cape Cod event. The Navy should be required to disclose all exercises types including sonar, submarines, explosives, aircraft, etc.

    2. NOAA/ NMFS needs to put temporarily hold on giving the Navy new authorization to test sonar all over the world that is currently pending, until Cape Cod event is thoroughly investigated.

    EDIT (02/10): Just got new information that in addition to Comptuex, there is also the “biggest in 10 years” exercise is ongoing called “Bold Alligator”. Maps show Navy’s vessels in the area. The older map is here, vessels were actually even closer to the Cape Cod. Info about the Bold Alligator is here and the recent article about 11 more common dolphins stranded yesterday (02/09) is here.

    Sure dolphins, mammals, and birds use magentic fields to travel or migrate which might explain the mass animal deaths due to the sudden movements, but what about the crustaceas such as clams, jellyfish, crabs and starfish that are also dying in mass nuumbers around te world.. how are they dying. becuase i dont remeber them using magnetic fields..are the oceans giving off deadly chemicals or heat on the sea floor due to extreme volcanism lately that we arent seeing or detecting!! also jellyfish have been rising in mass numbers and taking over oceans since 2007!!
