Germany | Navy accused of killing endangered porpoises by detonating WWI-era mines inside MPA

Animal rights organizations have accused the German navy of killing 18 endangered porpoises by exploding British World War I mines in a marine nature preserve in the Fehmarn Belt, a narrow strait between Denmark and Germany.


In a statement released on Saturday, the environmental organization Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union (NABU) said the Bundesmarine exploded 42 mines during NATO exercises in August, 39 of which were inside a nature preserve.
