Navy sonar 'did cause mass dolphin deaths'

4 posts in this topic

The Royal Navy has been blamed for driving dozens of dolphins to an agonising death during anti-submarine war games.

A four-year investigation by scientists has ruled out every other cause for the UK’s largest stranding of common dolphins in shallows off the coast of Cornwall in 2008.

At the time, the area was hosting a week of ‘live fire’ war games involving 20 Royal Navy ships, helicopters and submarines – including the nuclear-powered sub HMS Torbay – as well as 11 foreign vessels.

But despite calls from conservationists for military exercises now to be adapted to safeguard wildlife, the Navy has rejected the investigation’s findings.

Rejected??? what right have they got to just "reject' the findings!!?

Is this and those of the other countries involved, governments going to intervene and make sure they adapt their exercises, or are they going to "reject" these findings too?

I hope this goes to the highest courts possible, the Navy should not be allowed to get away with this.

What is the point of having armed forces to protect countries and yet they are murdering the sea life.

how did the Navy kill them? did they fire upon the dolphins? - what seems to have happened is 60 dolphins swam up the river, and four days later 26 of the dolphins stranded themselves - no autopsy can determine the reason they stranded themselves. we can guess. - we have mass strandings of whales, dolphines etc all around the world. even when their is not a cause to be found. we cannot at the whim just accept guess work, so im not surprised the Navy as rejected the findings. - if we're truly concerned our attention should turn to Japan and other Asia Pacific region countries - where thousands of dolphins each year are herded into the shallows to be clubbed to death. it puts things into perspective.
