700 endangered seals found dead on Russia’s Caspian shore


CNN —Around 700 endangered seals have been found dead on Russia’s Caspian coast in the North Caucasus, local officials said Sunday. Caspian seals, the only mammals found in the Caspian Sea, have been classified as endangered on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list since 2008. The seals washed up on the coast of Russia’s republic of Dagestan, along the Caspian Sea, the largest landlocked body of water in the world. TASS said “researchers had already started working on identifying the cause of the mammals’ deaths.”The news comes after more than 140 Caspian seals were found dead on Kazakh beaches of the Caspian Sea earlier this year, according to KASPIKA, an agency for the conservation of Caspian seals. The Caspian Sea is bordered by five countries: Azerbaijan, Iran, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Turkmenistan.
