About 1,2 thousand dead for unknown reasons, the pelicans have been found on the coast of Peru, reports BBC Radio and Television on Monday BBC.
Earlier it was reported that on the beaches of the northern coast of the country have been found more than 200 dead pelicans.
Furthermore, there were found 54 dead boobies, sea lions and one turtle.
Cause of death of birds is not known. Experts can not identify where dead birds — at sea or on land.
The dead birds were found in approximately the same place where a week ago were discovered almost 900 dead dolphins.
Experts do not rule out that we can talk about a virus that is deadly to marine life.
At the same time, have not ruled out version poisoning toxins or heavy metals dissolved in seawater. Then experts have noticed that just about 200 km from the place of death of dolphins held exploration by U.S. company BPZ.
Government authorities have denied a connection between the fact of death of marine mammals, and the conduct of these operations. It is expected that the reports of experts will be in the next few days.
