Peru Birds Dying

Whats going on in Peru? MASS BIRD DIE-OFF: More Than 1,200 Pelican Found Mysteriously Dead in Northern Peru - Same Region as the Mass Dolphin (800) Die-Off?! http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Fperu21.pe%2F2012%2F04%2F28%2Factualidad%2Fhallan-mas-1200-pelicanos-muertos-2021995&act=url
According to Francisco Nique, president of the Association of Fishermen of Puerto Eten, for about 10 or 12 days have found more than 1,200 dead pelicans along 160 kilometers, between Punta Negra, in Piura , and San Jose creek in Lambayeque .
He reported that seven dolphins were found stranded, which add up to more than 3,000 fish dead in northern Peru so far this year.
The Peruvian Sea Institute (IMARPE) has not yet determined the cause of death of the birds and said the dolphins may have been killed by a virus, while Nique said the cause could be the paucity of species that function as food or seismic waves for exploration activities in the area.
