Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Dolphins and Sonar
Dolphin Troubles May Be Related to Sonar 

Washington Post
March 11, 2005

Wildlife workers are attempting to save some of the nearly 80
rough-toothed dolphins that beached themselves last week in the Florida
Keys. Nearly 30 of the mammals have died, while more than 20 have
returned to the ocean. 

The mass stranding occurred as a U.S. Navy submarine was conducting
exercises in the area. The sub was using two types of active sonar,
which allows subs and ships to locate one another by emitting sound
waves that bounce off objects.
