In Peru sind in den letzten drei Monaten über 3000 Delfine tot an Strand angespült worden. Der peruanische Biologe Carlos Yaipen vermutet, dass seimische Methoden zur Erdölsuche in nahegelegenen Meeresbereichen zum Tod der Delfine feführt hat. Konkret im Verdacht steht die in Houston ansässige Ölfirma BPZ Energy, die seit Jahresbeginn seismische Untersuchungen des Meeresbodens vor der peruanischen Küste durchführt.

Peruvian biologist Carlos Yaipen of the Scientific Organization for Conservation of Aquatic Animals says activity from petroleum companies in the nearby waters is to blame in this instance.

Yaipen believes that a controversial technique for detecting oil beneath the seabed, using sonar or acoustic sensing, is leading the death of marine life en masse.

As of this writing, Peruvian authorities have yet to identify the company whose activities may be leading to this grim toll on native marine life. According to Offshore Magazine, a trade publication of petroleum news, at least one entity, Houston-based oil company BPZ Energy, has been actively surveying the seabed along the coast of Peru since the beginning of the year.
