Re: Pelican and Dolphin Deaths Northern Peru

We were just at Tortugas and went to the Port of Casma (only four hours north of Lima) and there were dozens of dead pelicans still lying on the shores. If you want to enter the water after seeing that okay...but we went to other beaches for swimming. So far we're healthy! :D
