Ukraine president accuses Russia of ecocide in shellshock deaths of cetaceans washed up on PA shores

On May 9, Bogdan Bulete, regional head ranger at the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve in Romania, received what he thought was yet another routine call to check out a possible dolphin stranding near the town of Sulina. But when he reached the beach this time, the sight that met his eyes was “overwhelming,” he told Mongabay. Up to 30 dolphins lay dead on the sand.

“Some of them looked burned, and all of them had marks of nets around their tail or their belly,” he said.
