80 dolphins found dead on Irish Beaches so far in 2018

26th Feb 2018

As we reach the end of February 2018, we now have an unprecedented 80 dead dolphins (mostly common dolphins) on Irish beaches. To give some idea of the reality of this, here is a collage of half of these - 40 stranded dolphin photos. Viewers may find these pictures upsetting - they are. A grim reminder of what has been happening to common dolphins in Ireland every spring since 2011.

Thank you to all those who provided stranding photos and all photos are credited on www.iwdg.ie
