“Hundreds of penguins have been stranded on the coast of Paraná in the past two weeks. According to the biologist Camila Domit of the Laboratory of Ecology and Conservation of Mammals and Marine Reptiles of the Center for Sea Studies (CEM), Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), the number of beached animals that had been high since August had a jump last week, especially on Thursday (13) and Friday (14). The number has not yet been confirmed, but is estimated to be approximately 350 birds of the penguins-magellan species. The number of survivors was not confirmed, but most were dead. Two dolphins and some turtles were also found dead.
