Sea turtle deaths alarming Central America

Prophecy Sign:  Animal life will be swept away


More reports of mass animal deaths from around the globe.  (For a full list of all reports for the year 2013, please follow this link:  Mass Animal Deaths for 2013).  Animal life is wasting away as the world turns away from Almighty God.

There is only cursing, lying and murder, stealing and adultery; they break all bounds, and bloodshed follows bloodshed. Because of this the land dries up, and all who live in it waste away; the beasts of the field, the birds in the sky and the fish in the sea are swept away. Hosea 4:2-3 NIV

Sea turtle deaths alarming Central America
Hundreds of sea turtles are washing up dead on the beaches of Central America and scientists don't know why. One hypothesis is that the killer is a potent neurotoxin that can be produced by algae during red tides, which are large accumulations of algae that turn sea water red or brown. The puzzling thing, though, is that red tides have come and gone before without taking such a deadly toll on turtles. Making things worse, some o f the turtles dying are from endangered species.

Record number of dolphins dying off East Coast in 'measles' outbreak
The deadliest known outbreak of a measles-like virus in bottlenose dolphins has killed a record number of the marine mammals along the U.S. Atlantic coast in recent months, officials said Friday. A total of 753 bottlenose dolphins have washed up from New York to Florida from July 1 until Nov. 3, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The figure represents a 10-fold increase in the number of dolphins that would typically turn up dead along East Coast beaches, said Teri Rowles, program coordinator of the NOAA Fisheries Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program. "Historic averages for this same time frame, same geographic area, is only 74, so you get an idea of the scope," she told reporters.
