What is causing the death of stranded dolphins ?

Through the Stranding Scheme, the IWDG have been recording an increase in stranded common dolphins during the winter, and mainly since 2011.

The Marine Institute put out a tender in 2017 to contract a study to establish the cause of death in a sample of common and striped dolphins and harbour porpoise.

The IWDG won this tender in collaboration with the Regional Vert Labs and GMIT. Here we explain how this work feeds into the IWDG Stranding Scheme.
