Lone dolphin survivor rescued from ongoing Gulf of Mexico oil and Corexit carpet-bombing massacre
The first live dolphin has been found in the Gulf of Mexico since the nation’s largest eco-catastrophe in history, the TransOcean BP deep sea oil explosion where oil is still leaking. The dolphin was sick and stranded in Alabama where he was rescued and transported to Gulfport, Mississippi to the hands of Moby Solangi, director of Institue for Marine Mammal Studies to convalesce and be researched to provide clues to the dead dolphin pehnomena that began when the TransOcean deepsea oil rig rented by BP exploded April 20, 2010.
“From a scientific standpoint, this is a very significant event,”Director of the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, Moby Solangi said of the dolphin being found alive.
Two dead dolphins were found within a few miles of the survivor.
The sickly, stranded dolphin was found in Alabama and transported to Gulfport to convalesce and be studied could provide clues to a spike in dolphin deaths that has occurred over the past year,” reported GulfLive at the Mississippi Press.
“The 2-year-old male is the first to be found alive since the “BP oil spill” last spring, according to Moby Solangi, director of the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, where the dolphin is being held.”
The Gulf dead dolphin phenomenon has been among the most concerning to independent scientists because it is more like humans than any other marine life.
The cover-up of the dead dolphins in the Gulf has been so extreme, it inolved government agents paying a visit to dolphin lover Peter Fonda before he addressed a press conference for the movie, “The Big Fix” at Canne Film Festival this spring. The agents said he could speak at the press conference as long as he said nothing about the dead dolphins in the Gulf.
After research showed what happens to dolphins happens to humans, in late October, a leading National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientist Dr. Terri Rowles said at a national media briefing that, based on preliminary research findings, oil and Corexit physically stressed Gulf dolphins to death, resulting in the ongoing dolphin die-off in Louisiana waters and along the Gulf Coast.
The lead research scientist’s theory is that oil and Corexit decreased dolphin immunity, increasing susceptibility of brucella, a bacteria causing the disease, marine brucellosis that other scientists say can be transmitted to humans, is difficult to treat, and requires blood and samples tests to diagnose and treat.
Although the deep sea BP Gulf of Mexico oil well was said to have been capped 16 months ago, the oil is still bubbling up from BP’s Macondo Formation area, an ongoing catastrophe in the nation’s biggest cover-up to date according to Josh and Rebecca Tickell’s movie, “The Big Fix” that documents details of the ongoing catastrophe and related human rights violations, including the right to health abuses.
Solangi gives the lone rescued dolphin a 50-50 chance of survival.
Saturday, its swimming had become a little steadier according to Solangi.
“He’s in guarded condition. We’ve got him on 24-7 watch.”
