Massive Dolphin Die-Off Mystery Solved!!

| Filed under: Sad SadHealthScience!Scary!Dolphins

This is so crazy, but dolphins have been dying at an alarming rate… and no one knew why.

From New York to North Carolina, 357 dolphins have died between July 1st and August 26th of just this year!

There are normally only about 36 deaths during that time!!

That's awful?? What's going no?!

Apparently, it's a virus! Scientists have just discovered the morbillivirus, similar to measles, is weakening dolphins' immune systems.

The outbreak cannot spread to humans, so we're safe, but dolphins are still dying and there's no way to immunize wild dolphins!

Oh no! We better figure out some way to help them! Poor dolphins…

Check out the video (above) to learn a little more about this scary situation.
