Increased Dolphin Deaths

There has been a sharp increase in dolphin fatalities, especially young ones, in the Gulf of Mexico.  Scientists are analyzing the remains to determine the cause of death, hoping to find a pattern.  Many people suspect the BP oil slick and dispersants, although a final conclusion has not yet been reached and it's important not to jump to conclusions.  Help me keep an eye out, okay?  I want to find out the final results on this one, which will probably take a few weeks or a couple of months to emerge.
