Fishermen found two whales and more than 40 dead sea lions between the beach of San José ( Lambayeque ) and the Íllescas reserve in Sechura-Piura. 
 
According to reports, the stranding of marine species occurred as a result of the high tide that has been present for several days throughout the coast, which is why the Maritime Captaincy ordered the closure of the docks and coves of the Lambayeque region, for prevention .
 
Marine species were in a state of decomposition. The fact was reported to the authorities of the Institute of the Sea of ​​Peru (Imarpe) in order to know the cause of the deaths. 
 
In this regard, the president of the Asoprovida (Protective Association of Life), Elmer Burga Mundaca, reported that every year this stranding of whales, dolphins and other marine species is increasing in many parts of the world and is due to the deviation of the axis Terrestrial in relation to the planet’s magnetic axis.

Hundreds of camels dying in the desert of Qatar

(AFP)
The break in Qatar’s relationship with its Arab neighbors has had a bloody aftermath. Hundreds of camels are dying of hunger and thirst in the desert.
 
In June, six Arab countries, led by Saudi Arabia, accused the Qatari dynasty of fomenting terrorism, breached diplomatic relations and prompted sanctions and an economic blockade.
 
For decades, Qatari peasants used the much larger territory of Saudi Arabia to raise their camels and sheep. But one of the consequences of the political crisis was the expulsion of Saudi lands from Qatari citizens along with some 15,000 camels and 10,000 sheep.
 
The rushed exodus of peasants and their animals through the desert and temperatures up to 50 ° C was bloody.
 
Some estimate that at least one hundred baby camels died during the trip to Qatar.
 
“On my return from Saudi Arabia I saw more than a hundred camels killed on the road and hundreds of camels and sheep wandering lost,” Hussein told Marri to the Daily Mail . “Many in agony and others with broken legs and other wounds.”
 
The Qatari government set up shelters on its side of the border with food and water tanks. But many animals could not get there.
 
Camels are mainly used to produce milk and also for breeding, since the races of these animals are popular in Qatar.
 
It is estimated that there are still about 150,000 Qatari camels in Saudi Arabia and it is not clear what their fate will be .

300 dead turtles found washed up this year, 1,200 found last year on Sao Paulo coast, Brazil

One thousand and two hundred turtles have died on the north coast of the state of São Paulo since the beginning of 2016. The survey was done by the Argonauta Institute in Ubatuba and shows that only 300 dead species were found this year. The main causes are predatory fishing and garbage on the high seas.
 
The data are part of a project to monitor the 160 beaches on the north coast of the state. By the sand and by stretches by the sea, the teams of the project cover about 140 kilometers monitoring the marine nature.
 
The unimpressive numbers are the result, most of the time, of the lack of awareness of the people with the destination of garbage. To give you an idea, in a year and a half of the beach cleaning campaign, 9.8 tons of trash left behind were collected.
 
According to the president of the Argonauta Institute, Hugo Gallo, about three dead turtles are found per day . After the necropsy report, many of them have several trash in the stomach. However, this picture is an accumulation of several other irregularities.
 
“This is rather serious, but it is a kind of snowball. Animals eat garbage, which should not be there, because sometimes food is missing and one factor adds to the other,” he said.
 
For the biologist João Alberto dos Santos, the neglect of garbage left on the beaches is an aggravating factor. “Everyone needs to do their part, in a way people continue to be indifferent to the disposal of garbage in the environment,” he said.

Thousands of fish die in a canal in Wambrechies, France

Since Friday, hundreds of fish come out of the canal to search for oxygen, explains Alain Sion, captain of the marina. There, between the boats, there were many, one could have walked on the water! “With the help of yachtsmen, the captain set off pumps, to oxygenate the water. “Because of strikes and unemployment at the locks of Lille, Quesnoy and Comines, there have been far fewer passages of barges,” he said. If one adds the strong heat, one gets a piscicole hecatomb.
 
Thousands of fish could be saved, but 3 to 4,000 of them died and were taken out of the canal by Alain Sion. A gesture he still had to make this Sunday, which explains the pestilential smoke that emanated from some garbage. With the lower temperatures, we can hope that things will be better.
