An official investigation has been launched after dozens of turtles, dolphins, and fish were discovered dead on different parts of Guatemala’s Pacific coast, the National Council of Protected Areas said Thursday.

Sixty-five turtles, most of them olive ridley sea turtles, and fourteen dolphins were found dead. Their remains will be examined to determine what caused them to die.

Officials think the heavy rains in recent days may have carried some toxic materials from the mainland into the sea, or industrial fishing developed offshore could have killed the animals.
