Small animals are very sensitive.  In the mining industry,  Canaries have been used to tell if there is methane present in the air. If the bird fell off its perch,  miners know they needed to get out of the mine fast or a methane explosion could happen momentarily.

 

 What are these die-offs telling us?  Is there a pattern?  Are they happening in certain regions or where Earth changes are happening deep within the crust?  Check out the New Madrid here:

Dead fish and birds falling from the sky are being reported worldwide, suddenly. This is not a local affair, obviously. Dead birds have been reported in Sweden and N America, and dead fish in N America, Brazil, and New Zealand. Methane is known to cause bird deaths, http://www.zetatalk.com/index/zeta349.htm
and as methane rises when released during Earth shifting, will float upward through the flocks of birds above. But can this be the cause of dead fish? If birds are more sensitive than humans to methane release, fish are likewise sensitive to changes in the water, http://www.offshore-environment.com/gasimpact.html
as anyone with an aquarium will attest. Those schools of fish caught in rising methane bubbles during sifting of rock layers beneath them will inevitably be affected. Fish cannot, for instance, hold their breath until the emergency passes! Nor do birds have such a mechanism.

And why would Sweden have clouds of methane being released when it is not even on a fault line? Nor is Brazil on a fault line, though New Zealand and the New Madrid region in Arkansas are. We have often stated that the plates have had the rock fingers preventing movement along their edges broken off, so they have become slippery. In this state, they are now pressed against each other under the stress of a more violent and rattling wobble. The stress is evident on ALL plates, which are shifting around, internally, under the strain. Thus methane, so poisonous to birds and fish, is being released.

Young orca from Puget Sound pod found dead

Associated Press

LONG BEACH, Pacific County – Biologists say a dead killer whale that washed up near Long Beach over the weekend was a juvenile endangered Puget Sound orca.

The National Marine Fisheries Service and Center for Whale Research identified the whale as L112, a female orca born in 2009. She was part of the L pod, one of three pods of southern resident killer whales that frequent Puget Sound.

Jessie Huggins with Cascadia Research says the orca had significant trauma around the head, chest and side, but the cause of these injuries is still unknown. She says the trauma didn’t look like a typical ship strike but additional tests could provide insight on how the animal died.

She adds that biologists are aware of recent sonar activity in the area and that sonar activity may be one of many factors.

Scientists with Cascadia Research, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Portland State University and others conducted the necropsy Sunday. Results were released Monday.

A newborn offshore killer whale found in November died of a congenital defect.

3 COMMON DOLPHINS DEAD IN NEW JERSEY, EXPERTS LOOKING FOR LINK
2/13/12 06:17 pm
      

CAPE MAY CO.--Three common dolphins have now died along New Jersey's coast, prompting concern from marine life experts. Officials are now trying to determine if these incidents could be part of a much bigger picture.

"It's a shame to see that they got lost down here." Gary Waltz can only imagine that's what happened to the common dolphin that was found dead on a Lower Township beach Sunday afternoon. "It was sad," he said, "I hate to see that, especially dolphins, you know? Everybody loves dolphins, you know?"

It was one of three deaths of common dolphins here in New Jersey in just two days. Officials say the one seen swimming around a back bay lagoon in Ocean City just last week, also was found dead Sunday. And Monday morning, another common dolphin that was found in a Stafford Township, Ocean County lagoon died a short time later.

"Very concerned about the state of the planet, that such a nice creature is somehow getting messed up and beaching themselves," said Colleen Hughes, of Lower Township, "something's not right."

Experts say these types of dolphins are usually found in large groups, more than 20 miles out at sea. In the past several weeks, more than 160 of them have beached themselves in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. A mystery for experts, who are now looking at these New Jersey incidents.

"It's something we're going to keep a very, very close eye on." Marine experts say besides here in New Jersey, common dolphins have also washed up in southern Maine and Rhode Island. Now they're trying to figure out why this is happening. "A couple of red flags, I guess would come to mind, and a lot of that might be disease related," said Mendy Garron, the Northeast Regional Stranding Coordinator, for National Marine Fisheries Service, "are there any environmental parameters, are things going on in the environment that might cause the strandings?"

While little is known now, it's something that many are left wondering, especially those who got to see one of the creatures up close. "The hope is if we can find out why they're being left here," said Waltz, "and if there's something we can do to help 'em get where they're supposed to go."

Experts hope necropsies will shed some light on why the animals died and if there is any relation to them and the ones in Massachusetts. Meanwhile, if anyone spots any dolphins here in South Jersey, beached or swimming around, you're asked to keep your distance, and to contact the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine by dialing 609-266-0538.

Mystery ... hundreds of dolphins have washed up on shore in Peru.

Photo: Reuters

February 11, 2012

AT least 264 dead bottlenose dolphins have washed ashore over the past three days on Peru's northern coast, officials said as they seek to discover what killed the marine animals.

The dead dolphins were found over a 103 kilometre stretch of sandy beach, said Edward Barriga, an official with Peru's Oceanic Institute (IMARPE).

"We have taken samples to determine the cause of death," said Barriga, speaking from the city of Lambayeque, adding that vast quantities of dead anchovies had also been found in the region.

The dolphins may have been killed by the impact of off-shore oil exploration and drilling in the region, said Carlos Yaipen with ORCA, a non-governmental group that focuses helping ocean creatures in the south Pacific.

The mass dolphin deaths are a "very serious" issue, Mr Yaipen told AFP.

The head of a Lambayeque group representing aquafarmers, Jorge Cabrejos, said the anchovies appear to have eaten contaminated plankton, which then sickened the dolphins that ate the small fish.


Thirty-four of the world's 81 species of cetaceans swim off the Peruvian shores, 17 of which are dolphins. Of those, the most common is the bottlenose dolphin.

BEIJING: More than 50 migratory birds have been found dead at a wetland in China, a media report said.

The birds were discovered earlier this week in Wuhan, in central China's Hubei province, the China Daily reported.
Bags containing Carbofuran, a toxic pesticide, were found lying around the bodies at an islet used as a rest stop by thousands of birds who fly from the north of the country to the wetland every winter.
Many more birds got stuck in traps that had been set up by miscreants along a lakeside beach in the vicinity of the islet.

No Explanation for Pennsylvania's Purple Squirrel

Feb 10, 2012; 8:55 PM ET
Connie and Percy Emert took all the photos of the squirrel, and posted on them Facebook.

A Pennsylvania couple trapped, of all things, a purple squirrel on Sunday. Percy and Connie Emert, of Jersey Shore, Pa. caught the unusual animal when trying to keep birds safe from the rodents.

"We have bird feeders out in our yard, and the squirrels are constantly into them," said Jersey Shore resident Connie Emert. "My husband traps them and then sets them free elsewhere so they don't get into your bird feeders."

Emert said she had spotted a purple squirrel on her property but no one believed her.

"I kept telling my husband I saw a purple one out in the yard. 'Oh sure you did' he kept telling me," said Emert. "Well, he checked the trap around noon on Sunday and sure enough, there it was."

No one knows why the squirrel is purple.

"The squirrel's been eating peanuts. That's what we used in the trap," she continued.

The Emerts do not know why the squirrel is purple.

"We have no idea whatsoever. It's really purple. People think we dyed it, but honestly, we just found it and it was purple."

Move over Phil, there's a new rodent in town.

"We put him in an extra big cage so he has room to run around, and we'll release him soon. In the meantime, all the neighbors have been by to see him. No one can believe we have a purple squirrel!"

The Emerts released the squirrel back into the wild on Tuesday. Right now, no one knows where the animal is.

"We're not going to do a manhunt to look for the purple squirrel," Harold Cole, wildlife conservation officer for the Pa. Game Commission said.

Some AccuWeather.com employees have their own theories. Expert Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity said, "The squirrel could have been looking for somewhere warm and fallen into a port-a-potty or something similar."

AccuWeather.com Expert Senior Meteorologist Dan Kottlowski has a different idea. "Squirrels get into all kinds of stuff. He could have gotten into some purple ink or purple paint at some point."

Purple ink was the theory when people saw a purple squirrel called .... There were no theories when another purple squirrel was spotted in 1997.

A different purple squirrel was sighted in Minnesota in 1997. Photo submitted by Facebook fan Maren Nelsen Beckman.

John Griffin, Director of Humane Wildlife Services for the Humane Society, said "It might be possible that there was some introduction of a product into the nesting material that imparted this color to the fur, or accidental immersion/contact with a dying or coloring compound during (its) lifetime." He also said "The color (of the squirrel) does not appear to be even which would make me think that it is likely to be the natural color of the fur."

Stranded dolphins in Cape Cod baffle scientists

The worst spate of dolphin strandings in a decade will be brought to the attention of Congress

Scientists in Cape Cod are trying to determine what is causing dolphins to swim dangerously close to shore, with more than 100 becoming stranded in the last three weeks.

Members of Congress are due to be briefed on Friday about the strandings, the worst such event in more than a decade. Volunteers are maintaining coastal vigils and trying to get the animals back to sea.

"What is different about this particular event is that instead of having one discrete event, it is this string of ongoing strandings that started on 12 January and is just continuing," said Katie Moore, who manages marine mammal rescue operations for the International Fund for Animal Welfare. "It's day after day after day."

Moore is due to brief members of Congress on the strandings, which have been concentrated along a 25-mile stretch of coast that runs between the towns of Dennis and Wellfleet in Massachusetts.

It's not unheard of for dolphins to swim too close to shore, said Teri Rowles, who heads the marine mammals division of NOAA, the government agency that monitors oceans. "The Cape Cod area is a hot spot for mass strandings," she said.

But it's rare for such events to be confined to a single species – the common dolphin, in this case – and it was the worst such stranding since 1998.

Of the 111 that have come ashore, 81 were found dead, or died soon after they were stranded. Rescue workers, trundling along through the muck with specially adjusted stretchers, have eventually been able to return 30 surviving dolphins to the sea, Moore said.

But they remain baffled as to what caused the animals to swim so dangerously close to shore. Theories include the dolphins being lost, confused by changing tides or potentially diseased.

"In the ones we are finding alive, we are not seeing any consistent diseases or anything indicating a pattern as to why they might be stranding," said Moore. The dolphins were male and female, young and fullgrown. Most appeared healthy, although lab tests are still being processed.

There have been no severe winter storms: as in much of the north-east, the weather has been unusually warm for this time of year.

But Rowles suggested the animals could have become confused by changes in water temperature or tides that led them into Cape Cod Bay, or by the irregular features of the coastline.

There is also the possibility the dolphins could have been victims of their own natural sociability, simply following one another to

Australia: Swan River Trust searches for cause of fish deaths

dead fish

MYSTERY:Swan River Trust is investigating the deaths of thousands of fish in the upper reaches of the river. Picture: Richard Hatherly Source: PerthNow

SOURCE: http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/swan-river-trust-...

AUTHORITIES are investigating the deaths of thousands of fish in the Swan River.

River users reported finding about 5000 dead fish in the upper reaches of the river during the weekend.

Swan River Trust river systems manager Mark Cugley said officers were investigating the extent of the kill and what had caused it.

"The Trust was notified by the public on the weekend that a number of fish were seen floating in the water between Middle Swan bridge and the Ellen Brook confluence,” Mr Cugley said.

“Most of the fish appear to be juvenile black bream with the remainder being trumpeter.”

Mr Cugley said monitoring results had shown there were low oxygen levels in that part of the river due to high water temperatures creating conditions which were made worse by Friday's storm.

“Sudden rainfall often drags nutrient rich organic matter into the river and this typically causes oxygen levels to rapidly drop below levels suitable for fish and other aquatic fauna,” he said.

 “However, the exact cause of the deaths is yet to be determined and additional sampling will be carried out.

 “We have two oxygenation plants providing refuge downstream and they have since been ramped up to full capacity.”

New Zealand: 36 pilot whales die after stranding

SOURCE: http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/asia-pacific/120124...

Volunteers help re-float the 40 beached whales in New Zealand. (Screengrab)

A group of more than 90 pilot whales were beached on a spit on New Zealand’s South Island on Monday. Thirty-six of the whales had died by Tuesday, the Associated Press reported.

A final attempt to refloat the whales will be made during high tide today.

According to the Australian Associated Press, the pod has repeatedly been stranded on the spit, in Golden Bay on New Zealand’s South Island.

“We tried to refloat the other 40 and they simply wouldn’t move. We tried pushing them out to sea, and they just wouldn’t go,” said the Department of Conservation’s area manager John Mason to the New Zealand Herald.

Close to 50 volunteers are helping the rescue efforts with people traveling from as far as Australia, Auckland and Invercargill to participate. The volunteers were working three to a whale and were drenching sheets placed over the whale’s backs with water to stop their skin from blistering in the heat, Mason explained.

But the life span of the whales could be limited if they did not manage to refloat themselves at high tide at 11.38 tonight, he said.

“The third day of stranding is pretty much crunch time for the whales,” said Nigel Mountford, the Department of Conservation spokesman.

But Mason explained that the whales are still okay: “They are being looked after quite well but then again they have been through two tide cycles now so that’s got to have an effect on them.”

According to the BBC, scientists do not know what causes these mass beachings, which are common in New Zealand in the summer when whales pass by on their migration to and from Antarctic waters.

The dead whales will either be buried or left to dry out in the dunes.
