Over 1,200 seabirds mysteriously die on Pacific Coast

I just read this post and the links it gives. I recommend reading it.

The Citizen Media


(NaturalNews) Officials on the Pacific Coast are puzzled by the deaths of hundreds of small, white-bellied seabirds since October.

The birds, called Cassin’s auklets, are mostly gray in color and have blue feet. Media reports say they have been steadily washing ashore all along the Pacific Coast, from Northern California to the coast of the state of Washington, and that, naturally, is concerning wildlife and other experts because thus far they have yet to determine an exact cause for the massive deaths.

“To be this lengthy and geographically widespread, I think is kind of unprecedented,” Phillip Johnson, the executive director of the Oregon Shores Conservation Coalition, told the Pierce Pioneer, in its online edition. “It’s an interesting and somewhat mysterious event.”

    • You are welcome. It only makes sense that with the big oil spill off Florida’s coast and fukashima’s nuclear disaster that this is going to have catastrophic affects on the oceans. It should be a concern to everyone on the planet.

  2. Thank you for sharing this! I’d heard the tail end of the auklets’ story on the news the other week and have been meaning to read up more on it. We live in the Puget Sound of Washington and the Rhinoceros Auklets used to breed here on Whidbey Island.

    So many marine species here our having trouble this year – among other things, I think the warm ocean mass hanging off our coast is wreaking havoc on their food supply.

    • It really was upsetting to find this article on the web.I would like to monitor the impact on our oceansand what is being done for the ocean wildlife. There seems to be limited media coverage on the international level. I hope if you read more on this, that you post the articles because I would like to read about it.I try to read about the environment on the web.
