We’re not going to watch as more dolphins die along the Shore. Today we’re taking actions to figure out the problem. http://bit.ly/17lYMmD

If you click on the link, you see this …….

…… The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is part of NOAA’s Marine Mammal Stranding Network.
“While we hope the disease cycle is reaching its peak in New Jersey, we really don’t know how much longer this situation will continue,” said Bob Schoelkopf, the Marine Mammal Stranding Center’s Executive Director. “We are extremely appreciative for all of this assistance, which will relieve a great deal of pressure on our small organization.” ……

To date, NOAA has determined that 32 dolphins tested from all five states are either suspected or confirmed positive for morbillivirus. For 11 samples, genetic sequencing has confirmed this finding.
Morbilliviruses are naturally occurring pathogens in marine mammal populations, and because these viruses suppress the immune system, many animals ultimately die from secondary infections, according to NOAA Fisheries. Not all dolphins exposed to morbillivirus will die from these infections, but a large proportion may not survive. 
Morbilliviruses are usually spread through the air or direct contact between animals, including between mothers and young. Cetacean morbillivirus affects the lungs, brain and immune system of dolphins, causing illness and death. While this virus can easily spread among dolphin populations since the animals are highly social, it is not infectious to humans.

Uhmm, Chris, I think NOAA already has a handle on what’s happening.  I’m pretty sure wasting New Jersey money isn’t going to help this.  But, you’ll probably score points for the pandering.  It’s apparently a disease cycle.
