DEAD Dolphins Found Washed Up On Two Beaches In Malaga And Torremolinos

Two dolphins have been found washed up dead on two different beaches in Malaga in the last few hours, one in Torremolinos, and the other in the capital, both in an advanced state of decomposition.

The Malaga Endangered Marine Species Recovery Centre (CREMA) said that it will not be possible to carry out necrosis to determine the cause of death, due to the bad condition of the bodies, as reported by

The first dolphin was discovered on the Malagueta beach of Malaga, after the Andalucian Emergency 112 service received calls late on Wednesday afternoon reporting the animal dead on the sand there, and then the second one was reported at 8.50am this morning (Thursday 4), on the beach at Los Alamos de Torremolinos, in front of the José Cerdan restaurant.

A CREMA biologist, José Luis Mons Checa, said both were from the common ‘Delphinus delphis’, although due to their condition it was difficult to ascertain the exact species, but reported the first dolphin had probably been dead for four or five days, and the second one, measuring 1.7 metres in length, for around one month.
