Increased death of whales in Patagonia



Over the last three years 300 whales have died along the coast of Valdés Peninsula in Patagonia. A seminar was held to look into the matter.

The yearly average used to be around 30 dead whales, but in 2007 it grew to 83 and in 2008 it increased to 100.

The scientists suspect that climate change may be the cause, by increasing dangerous bacteria in the sea or reducing the quantity of available food.
