2500 dead seals found on the coast of the Caspian Sea in Russia

Published

At least 2,500 seals of an endangered species have been found dead on the coast of the Caspian Sea in Russia, according to the local environmental ministry, which has not yet determined the cause of the tragedy.

Mammal carcasses have been found on dozens of kilometers of coastline in Dagestan, the Russian republic’s Caucasus republic’s ministry of natural resources said Sunday evening, adding that a laboratory investigation was underway.


The “primary” cause is now being considered – death by asphyxiation from a release of gas to the bottom of the Caspian Sea, according to Svetlana Radionova, head of the Russian nature monitoring agency.

In an interview with the Russian TV channel Rossiya 24, Svetlana Radionova said that it was necessary to wait until the end of this week to get the first test results and determine whether, in particular, water pollution played a role in the incident.

Svetlana Radionova recalled that at the end of 2020, a similar tragedy occurred on the beaches of Dagestan and Azerbaijan, almost 2,000 dead seals were found.

The Caspian seal, the only seal species found in this closed sea that borders five countries (Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkmenistan), is threatened by both pollution and poaching.

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), at the beginning of the 20th century, there were more than one million seals, of which only 68,000 adults remained, or less than 7%.

This mammal was until recently heavily hunted, and now it is suffering from industrial pollution, which makes it sterile, as well as from falling sea levels caused by climate change.

I’m sorry this isn’t the pretty and joyful post it should be after finishing my 18th Valencia marathon today. What happened at 42.195 km was the least important, so I saved it for last. For me, this race, for which I had only prepared six times, was a struggle with myself. It was almost an exercise in pain, resilience, discipline that I imposed on myself to show myself that I was capable of withstanding anything. Everything really”started writing.

Since that summer, I have endured, week after week, one of the most difficult family dramas of my life. Extremely difficult situations, one of the worst that anyone can face, which I have to deal with, first of all, intelligently, because if I allowed myself to get carried away by emotions, I would be crushed. There were slaps and punches in the stomach one after another that led me to a life in a black world where I had never lived before. Many of these blows have resulted in wounds that remain wide open and show no signs of healing.” ventilated.
