An endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle washed up on the beach in Waveland on Friday morning, the latest in a rash of lost marine life found along the entire Mississippi Gulf Coast in the past two weeks.
"This has been a really serious situation," Dr. Moby Solangi, executive director of the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies (IMMS) in Gulfport, said Friday. "We've had just in the month of April so far, 14 dead dolphins and 23 Kemp's Ridley sea turtles. It's kind of concerning and we're responding. We're working with Mississippi State University to determine what's going on."
The dead dolphins and turtles all seem to have suffered from skin and eye lesions that are consistent with freshwater damage, Solangi said.
