Peruvian authorities are warning residents and tourists of a health danger as they investigate a strange mass die-off occurring off the Northern coast of Peru.  over 1,200 birds (mostly pelicans) and 800 dolphins have washed ashore dead over the last few months and no one knows why. The Ministry of Health was warning visitors to stay away from the beaches of its Northern coastline until they can determine the cause of this mass extinction.
