According to Ghanaontheglobe.com reports a large number of Dolphins have been found dead at Axim in the Western Region of Ghana.
The sudden death of the large number of Dolphins at the shores of the ocean is believed to be unprecedented as people are asking many questions as to how it happened and what is the cause.
Western Regional Acting Director of the Fisheries Commission, Alhassan Arafat Salifu said, he is unable to tell the cause of the incident, although most of the mammals washed ashore were dead while some were also found alive.
“We are now counting to know the actual numbers that were washed ashore since they are in different parts of the beach. Some are still struggling to breathe and some are dead,” he said.

Reacting to concerns of residents who had already taken several of the dead mammals, the Acting Western Regional Fisheries Director said they will conduct further investigations into the matter.
“This is the information we have also picked up, but we don’t know where those who picked some of the mammals have taken them to. So until we are able to do further investigation, we will not know where they have been taken to,“ he said.
The mammals that were alive have since returned to the sea.
The mammals according to Friends of the Nation, a socio-environmental NGO, belongs to the small-to-medium-sized toothed whale of the oceanic dolphin family.
