Beaches closed in Peru as bird and dolphin deaths continues

May 8, 2012 PERU - Officials insist that the two die-offs are unrelated. The dolphins are succumbing to a virus, they suggest, and the seabirds are dying of starvation because anchovies are in short supply. But even three months after officials began testing the dolphins, the government has not released definitive results, and there is growing suspicion among the public and scientists that there might be more to the story. Some argue that offshore oil exploration could be disturbing wildlife, for example, and others fear that biotoxins or pesticides might be working their way up the food chain. At least 877 dolphins and more than 1,500 birds, most of them brown pelicans and boobies, have died since the government began tracking the deaths in February, the Environment Ministry said last week. The dolphins, many of which appeared to have decomposed in the ocean before washing ashore, were found in the Piura and Lambayeque regions, not far from the border with Ecuador. The seabirds, which seem mostly to have died onshore, have been found from Lambayeque to Lima. “Never in my 40 years as a fisherman have I seen anything like this,” said Francisco Ñiquen Rentería, the president of the Association of Artisanal Fishermen in Puerto Eten, in the Lambayeque region. “Sometimes in the past, you’d randomly see a dead dolphin or a pelican, but this, what’s happening now, is really alarming. It is odd indeed,” Gabriel Quijandría, the deputy environment minister, acknowledged in an e-mail. “But they are not related.” The federal Ocean Institute has said that the most likely culprit in the dolphin deaths is the morbillivirus, from a family of viruses linked to previous mass deaths of marine mammals, Mr. Quijandría said, though officials in recent days have sounded less certain. For the seabirds, he wrote, the “most plausible hypothesis so far” from the National Agricultural Health Service is that they are dying from a lack of food, mainly anchoveta (Engraulis ringens), a Peruvian anchovy, as a result of the sudden heating of coastal waters. The Environment Ministry said the dolphin deaths had no link to fisheries, red tides or other biotoxins, bacteria, heavy metals or pesticides. It said it had also ruled out any connection to offshore seismic testing by companies to locate oil and gas deposits under the seabed. Still, fishermen, environmentalists and others suspect that government officials are not being completely candid. The discovery of dead animals on beaches near Lima, the capital, in recent days has complicated matters. Over the weekend, the Health Ministry issued an alert advising people to avoid the waters around Lima and to the north, “until we know the cause of the recent deaths of marine species.” –NY Times

    I think if they release the true cause of death on all of these animals the people would panic. If they really cannot find any scientific fact to link them, then it is a divine act from God as a sign to a wicked and unrepentant world.

    • zencomico says:

      Every happening has a How underneath. The science underneath. The only question is the importance of it. Every act is an act of God. The spiritual to material manifests as science. Just because the science is happening too fast for people to understand, does not make it non-existent. Even if things happened on the Earth that appeared wonders, they would still have scientific behaviours. Spirituality is the piano player. Science is the keyboard.

      • James says:

        very well put. I do believe that to be the case in most cases. Although I do believe there are some exceptions to the rule.

  2. Deny says:

    Is it just me or do these mass deaths stink of radioactive contamination from Fukushima?

    • atterro says:

      How can you explain the mass death PRIOR to Japan earthquake?

      Earthquake in Japan was in march 2011, where mass deaths started as early as January 2011. I doubt this has anything to do with that.

      This is something different.

      I’ve read about the ”Time when gods depart from mankind” and than signs of their return will be shown. This civilization has literally erased the possiblity of god, science has done a good job dismissing the possiblity as if science was a God itself.

      I’m afraid this civilization will learn it a hard way.

      From the Vishnu-Purana

      [There will] be contemporary monarchs, reigning over the earth; kings of churlish spirit, violent temper, and ever addicted to falsehood and wickedness. They will inflict death on women, children, and cows; they will seize upon the property of their subjects; they will be of limited power, and will, for the most part, rapidly rise and fall: their lives will be short, their desires insatiable; and they will display but little piety. The people of the various countries intermingling with them will follow their example; and, the barbarians being powerful in the patronage of the princes, whilst purer tribes are neglected, the people will perish. Wealth and piety will decrease day by day, until the world will be wholly depraved. Then property alone will confer rank; wealth will be the only source of devotion; passion will be the sole bond of union between the sexes; falsehood will be the only means of success in litigation; and women will be objects merely of sensual gratification. Earth will be venerated but for its mineral treasures [that is, there will be no Tirthas — places held sacred, and objects of pilgrimage; no particular spot of earth will have any especial sanctity]; the Brahmanical thread will constitute a Brahman; external types (as the staff and red garb) will be the only distinctions of the several orders of life; dishonesty will be the (universal) means of subsistence; weakness will be the cause of dependence; menace and presumption will be substituted for learning; liberality will be devotion — simple ablution will be purification; mutual assent will be marriage; fine clothes will be dignity; and water afar off will be esteemed a holy spring. Amidst all castes, he who is the strongest will reign over a principality [Bhu-mandala, "the earth"] thus vitiated by many faults. The people, unable to bear the heavy burthens [the original has kara-bhara, "load of taxes"] imposed upon them by their avaricious sovereigns, will take refuge amongst the valleys of the mountains, and will be glad to feed upon (wild) honey, herbs, roots, fruits, leaves, and flowers: their only covering will be the bark of trees; and they will be exposed to the cold, and wind, and sun, and rain. No man’s life will exceed three and twenty years. Thus, in the Kali age, shall decay constantly proceed, until the human race approaches its annihilation. “When the splendor of Vishnu, named Krishna, departed for heaven, then did the Kali age, during which men delight in sin, invade the world. So long as he continued to touch the earth with his holy feet, so long the Kali age was unable to subdue the world]

      That was written more than 2 thousand years ago.

      You guys do the math!

  3. Meridian says:

    I find this so incredibly sad…

  4. Discordian says:

    It’s incredible how many “viruses” have struck the animal kingdom over the last year – marine mammals, birds, cattle in the US and Europe, fish. So many “viruses”, yet no mention of Fukushima radiation.

    So much disinformation, so little time.

    • Lynne says:

      Some of the dolphins looked burnt. Would radiation do that?

      • Discordian says:

        Possibly. I don’t know for sure since I am not terribly great in the science department. However, check the postings of xdrfox at beforeitsnews.com and I’m sure you will find an answer to that question. I want to say, yes that is an indication; but again I’m just an English teacher and only know what I pick up from other expert sources. Alvin, will you weigh in on the question, for a more reputable source?

  5. suz says:

    It’s called a silent epidemic by some scientists because it receives so little attention from governments around the world. Grizzlly bears, caribou, and orca whales all shown to be in great danger according to gov’t records, yet there are no laws to protect them. If we really care about our wildlife and it’s future, we need to start paying much more attention to our own role in the extinction crisis and send letters to our gov’t elected officials to make sure steps are taken to protect our wildlife.

    • Discordian says:

      Not sure how effective that would be. During the Gulf Oil Spill (especially 2010), the trustworthy and noble officials of the federal government did everything in their power to crush public awareness of the problem and to serve their corporate masters (BP in this case) by insulating them form all criminal and legal repurcussions.

  6. suz says:

    The internet is a powerful tool …..that’s why I love this site. It’s raising public awareness. I don’t know if it is enough though either Discordian. When it’s too late and there is no turning back then they’ll want to do something.

  7. Love Faith says:

    Oh, I see. God bless.

    • Korheg says:

      I personally don’t think it’s radiation from Fukushima, if you look at it on a map, it’s just too small a scale to affect the world that much. Its still bad, but radiation isn’t enough to cause mass die offs unless they are close to a concentrated source…

      I believe it’s due to the changing climate and composition/temperature/oxygen levels in the ocean… Ocean life will always be affected first because they are more sensitive. Therefore it only makes sense that birds are dying too, their migratory patterns are all screwed up, and their food supply is gone.

      I believe we are getting very close to the end of the age where Christ comes back to take his people and burn up the weeds.

      God bless, brothers and sisters, lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

      • suz says:

        I’m certainly not an expert on this subject but there are very few experts in this field who are able to answer all these controversial questions.

        There is one thing that they do seem to agree on and it’s that we are overdue for a geomagnetic pole reversal. Because no one is really sure about this subject they are not eager to share what they think will happen as the magnetic field weakens. There are so many inconsistent ideas about pole reversals and shifts…how, why and when it will happen. Some think it’s a 200,000 yr cycle and others think it’s much shorter like 10,000 yrs. There is evidence of a link between reversals and leaps in our evolution. The damaged geomagnetic field that protects all living things from solar radiation is damaged and that could cause cancer and also it could mutate our DNA.

        Wikipedia claims that ‘72 million years ago (Ma), the field reversed 5 times in a million years. In a 4-million-year period centered on 54 Ma, there were 10 reversals; at around 42 Ma, 17 reversals took place in the span of 3 million years. In a period of 3 million years centering on 24 Ma, 13 reversals occurred. 51 reversals occurred in a 12-million-year period, centering on 15 million years ago.

      • I recall reading about and watching a documentary on a group of scientist who were excavating some ancient Greek ruins and they were testing some of the old clay pots for age etc and found that the clay was different the difference was that the clay had the opposite magnetic field that we know today and they show it was under 3000 years old. So apparently this clay, had been subjected to a different field at some point in time. That is not to say it was made during the reversal but the good thing I see in this is that even with a reversal, everything was still here.. no major loss of land mass, because clay is not too deep undergound. From what I have read about reversals over the last 45 years is it can happen very fast with little or no effect or it can happen more slowly.. one thing I always check in the moring when I let the water out of the sink, if the water is going down the drain clock wise, nothing has changed, if it’s counter clock wise, we have had reversal. That is here in the US.. if you cross the International Dateline, it would be opposite. I do not beleive that our standard 60 and 240 hertz. would work, most of the batteries have a polarity and I believe these would also fail.
        I don’t know about satellites or flying because the EMF is often used to navigate on maps.
        Just my beliefs. Read Edgar Cayce’s works, he talks about reversals as well.

      • Suz says:

        Can it happen suddenly Charlotte? Even happening slowly I imagine there would be huge errors in our navigational technology and maybe even a difference in migration patterns of different animals that we believe use the magnetic north pole as navigation. It would mean earthquakes, strange weather patterns, massive tsunamis. Ocean currents and the heat balance of the Earth would change, resulting in widespread climatological shifts. Ice caps might melt and reform elsewhere, or remain melted, driving sea levels down or up. Sounds like what is happening now, doesn’t it?

      • Yes to some degree. I have always believed that its the SUN causing the global warming and not the florocarbons or greenhouse gases etc.. Its also warming the oceans to cause the melt down of the ice flows and bergs.. but as long as we have the permafrost I am not too concerned.
        Some scientists are now saying that we are beginning to cool down already so how do we know if we are in a ” New and unusual weather pattern ” or is this the norm and we are Same with quakes they say we are getting far more than usual, but maybe we have been in a period of far fewer than usual. There are all kinds of scenarios but I sitll believe if we haved a pole shift, yes the weather would be thunderings and lightenings that we have not witessed before and the Sun could get very active or quiet down and of course the tides would be affected but the moon would still hold things in check.( I hope) there would be water where there had been none and dry where it had been wet.. since most of planet is water perhaps we would end up with more dry land than we have now.
        and just as in a solar flare that would take us off the grid, so would the change in polarity… no cell phones, or computers or radios or electricity till they were able to change over to the current european frequency. No bank vaults would open because everything runs on a clock with a battery back up. Cars would have null on their batteries both gas and naturally electric..
        planes could not navigate and people with pace makers would die… many would die if their hearts were not strong enough to change the rythem as we are all on a internal clock and we all have the shuman resonance and that would also be affected.

        Thanks for your response.

  8. Gavriel Bootel says:

    With all the wild life that appears to be perishing globally and on a grand scale has anyone given any thought to the amount of nuclear fall out from Fukushima that is circuling the globe? Australia and New Zealand registered a spike in levels of air borne radiation in February this year and this doesnt include the amount of air borne radiation that has hit the ground in California and other US states. We must also take into account the amount of radioactive waste water that is being dumped into the sea from the Fukushima Nuclear power plant that is also circulating the Pacific Ocean. This will have a detrimental affect on sea life and the food chain. I wonder if they’re testing for radiation poisoning?

  9. Gavin Green says:

    Probably has something to do with the amount of radiated waste water being flushed into the pacific ocean by the Fukushima plant and lets not forget all the waste from the dozens of other nucluear power plants around the world, chemical waste and polutants that are not found in most sea food, fresh or canned. World governments and big business are the disease that needs a cure!

  10. Kindred Spirit says:

    Yes, these are most certainly signs of the prophesies…scientifically, the Earth’s magnetoshere is being seriously affected, due primarily to solar changes and significant solar flares, and the majority of species affected are ‘governed’ by the magnetosphere…radiation poisoning could also be contributing significantly to the demise of species populations…sad to witness this happening but ‘we’ are being warned of what is yet to come…

  11. Dawn says:

    Are they for real viruses? I think viruses may contribute to some deaths of these animals, but come on now everytime I read about these animals dying in massive amounts on land and the water it just makes no sense to me that they can only say they believe the cause is a virus or pollution. Yes, there are oil spills and I’m sure radiation didn’t help, but its enough now there is something way bigger going on here killing off all these animals it’s happening all over the world. Something is not right and when are they going to say the truth. People are not stupid and how long are they going to act like we are? We are having earthquakes all over the world, volcanoes erupting on land and underwater all at the same time, how can it not be related. It is all related and scary that we have to come here to get the real news because the mainstream news isn’t reporting any of it. What happens when or if we have no internet for whatever reason? We would be in the dark not knowing anything that is going on. Thank god we have you Alvin!

    • And I thank God each day for all of you.

    • merle says:

      Dawn, you really expressed what I am feeling also! I grew up in a world with no internet, etc. However, I have become very much accustomed to digging up solid information on these types of events via the internet. Sites such as this one are extremely valuable to me, as I’m sure others as well. It’s a disturbing thought when I imagine losing access to true and important info because of power grid loss… due to a number of different disaster scenarios!

  12. Steve says:

    I think the scales have tipped, people are aware, and it’s not going to be pretty
    God help us all

  13. Joel says:

    Its as if yesterday 50-100 dolphin die offs were normal and “they happen all the time”. And now a thousand dolphins die, and tomorrow its going to be normal and “it happens all the time”. F that.

    • zencomico says:

      its always been this way……if science cannot explain something….there last resort is to call it normal…. they even convince themselves….Ie. They live in lies, speak in lies, and figure their own lies for truth. The ‘experts’ themselves are struggling with their own intellectual pride. The wise are made fools, and eventually many, many people in the world will have to face, they do not have a clue about how the world actually works, and never did.

  14. Kathy says:

    Could the source of the “toxins”, killing the wildlife, be coming from the center of the earth?? These two latest die-offs, are in Peru, where the earth is rumbling. Other die-offs seem to be near seismicly active areas, too.

    • zencomico says:

      How is so much important, as Why. The whole reason this is happening, is because too many people are substituting how for why in the world. What does it matter how a lion is chasing you, rather than why? But if you are observing the lion chase someone else, you feel it is safe to analyse how instead of why, it will turn on you, without knowing why.

      Fish get sick. Bird eat fish. Just like humans get sick. How they get sick is the fantasy. Why is the reality and has forever been a mystery, because people avoid the why.

  16. John David says:

    Seems the dolphins are under attack by our Overlords which recalls to mind that they apparently emit sonic sounds that are helping to bring us and our planet to a higher vibration. Of course this is just one view but who can deny they are one of the planet’s most loving creatures!!

    It looks like HAARP to me…..yep

  19. And I bet they’ll say the earthquakes in the EXACT same area have nothing to do with this

  20. frank says:

    Folks it is the sun… The Myans were partially right about our demise. the gauss rate (the magnetic power of the sun is seriuosly weakening and soon will be too low to create an exploding sun spot. As of now the sun has created so few exploding sunpots in a time it should be looking like the Forth of July. Our own planet’s magnetic field is dropping like a boulder. We are not protected like we were even ten years ago. I think we have crossed the line , especially in certain parts of the planet. South america is consistatly one of the weakest spots for our magnetic field…
    Keep a watch on South America. What happens there will spread out to the rest of the world. I Am afraid world governments do not want us to know the truth that our protective cover is letting in lethal solar wind and mini magnetic fields are forming causing magnetically aligned mamals and birds to crash into the ground and or get disorintated causing blunk force trauma and other forms of death…may God look after us all…

  21. Stefan says:

    Last winter we had about 100 birds that fell out of the sky one morning. After autopsies it was shown that they couldn’t breathe before they died. They haven’t coming up with what made it, but it sure is scary. Can it be gasses ? Pollutions ?

  22. Not sure about the cause of he deaths of the Peiicans but the Dolphins, just like the Pilot Whales I beliveve are dying due to seismic/volcanic activity off shore. Look at the increase of Seismic /Earthquake activity off Peru and Brazil and Columbia in recent months..The changes in the electromagnetic field are enough to cause them to lose their bearings and that alone can cause them to beach, but if they are dying before coming on shore, perhaps its a combination event… Perhaps the ” off shore drilling ” is not directly responsible , but they may have accidently opened up or caused a fracture where poisoneous gases are seeping into the ocean waters and killing off he mammals. As for the anchovies they totally react to the seimic precursors /elecromagnetic field and if they left the area in search for colder and deeper waters, the Pelicans would not be able to sustain their diet needs and indeed they could be dying of starvation. I have made numerous EQ predictions based on the beachings of Pilot Whales, Sperm Whales, Humpback Whales and Anchoives, all accuractly. The MA Ceceatean Institute agreed with my reseach as far back as1979 connecting whales and earthquakes. 3 days before Japans’ 9.0 event 400 Dolphins beached off remote New Zealand and Kermadec Islands. The warmer waters are not due as much to global warming as to all the off shore volcanic activity which is heating the waters just enough to cause the anchovies, shrimp and crabs to head for deeper and colder water combined with the EMF this would be a major problem. The scientist and medical professionals in 1980 after extensive testing coined my reseach and prediction ability ” The Charlotte King Effect ”

    All of these events were predicted based on my reseach combined with the beachings.
    Pilot Whales beached before Christchurch NZ 2010
    Pilot Whales beached before Japan 2011
    Pilot Whales beached before Indoneisia 2004
    Sperm Whales beached before series of Big Bear CA quakes 1979
    Pilot Whales beach on East Coast of US, quake hits Hollister CA 1979
    Anchovies beached in Santa Cruz CA 3 days before moderae quake hit Santa Cruz in 1984
    Humpback whale on two ocassions gets land locked off San Francisco CA.. both times he was able to leave after a small quake hit near the SF Bay. * early and mid 1980′s )

    Since Magnetic Fields move at the speed of light, distance is not an issue between the beachings and the events. They can be close or far away.

  23. Emelee says:

    Apart from all pollution of Fukushima and oil wells must be remembered that the Russian spacecraft Phobos-Grunt fell somewhere in the Pacific Ocean with highly toxic fuel.

  24. Carrie B says:

    I think it’s pretty obvious that the oil spills and the chemical dispersants are behind this.
