    Mysterious death of at least 88 grey dolphins on the coast of Rio do Janeiro state

    According to the local Brazilian media Al Dia News, it's the worst mass death of the dolphin this decade, reports.

    Environmentalists in Brazil say they are trying to figure out why more than 80 gray dolphins have died in less than a month on the coast of Rio de Janeiro state. A statement from the Gray Dolphin Institute says the dolphins died over past 17 days in the Bay of Sepetiba, a coastal district about 70 kilometers west of Rio de Janeiro. The institute is an NGO that monitors and strives to protect the dolphins.
