Seismic testing for oil and gas off Maryland and other Atlantic coast states could cause widespread harm to whales, dolphins, sea turtles and fish, as well as to fishing and tourism, an environmental group warned Tuesday. Oceana said the federal government's own environmental impact statement estimates 138,500 whales and dolphins could be injured if seismic "airguns," which generate blasts of noise underwater, are used to explore for oil and gas along the Atlantic coast.  The Department of Interior's Bureau of Ocean Energy Management is weighing applications to conduct offshore seismic testing from Delaware to Florida.

The National Aquarium Marine Animal Rescue Program (MARP) recorded sightings of 31 Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins at the event held last Friday. More than 100 volunteers of all ages joined with about 30 aquarium workers at Assateague and Ocean City to help count the creatures at several locations throughout town.

The National Aquarium's Marine Animal Rescue Program staff is inviting the public to go to the beach with them and look for dolphins. On Friday, July 20, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., the National Aquarium will conduct its annual effort to collect information on the number of Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.

The event, which has been held since 1997, encourages volunteers to collect data that helps provide a picture of the animals' populations and reproductive rates.

People aren't the only ones at risk from eating mercury-contaminated fish, since coal-burning power plants have liberally sprinkled the toxic metal across the earth's waters.  But it appears that captive dolphins have a little less to worry about in that regard than their wild counterparts. A new study by researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the National Aquarium in Baltimore found that the aquarium's captive bottlenose dolphins have lower levels of mercury in their bodies than wild dolphins tested off the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of Florida.
