The End of One Story

Mediterranean Sea is an important habitat for dolphins. There are four different dolphin species living in this area. The progressive pollution of the Mediterranean by e.g. sewage, mineral oil or plastic waste facilitates disease among marine wildlife. Especially in the Strait of Gibraltar, the increased shipping traffic in the Mediterranean has endangered dolphins and collisions happen time and time again. Also NATO’s sonar experiments in the Mediterranean prove to be a potent menace, since dolphins are damaged to such an extent that mass beaching and subsequent death of the animals occur more and more frequently. The destruction of untouched coastal habitats and the unlimited construction of new sporting ports with an increased choice of leisure activities narrow the natural habitat of these marine mammals down even further.
