Bodies of two dolphins found in Fuerteventura
The bodies of two dolphins have been found in coastal areas of Fuerteventura. They were the so-called common dolphin species (Delfinus delphis). The first was a male, less than five years old, and was discovered stranded at Playa Bajo Negro in the nature reserve of Corralejo in La Oliva. The second was an adult male, sighted by a kayaker in Morro de la Lapa, between the Playa de Agando and Valle del Aceitún, in the municipality of Tuineje. In both cases, the biological station in La Oliva has performed autopsies to determine the exact cause of death.
