A total of 38 dolphins have been found dead across the Bulgaria's southern Black Sea coast since the beginning of 2013.

The latest case of a dead dolphin found on the Bulgarian southern Black Sea coast emerged at the Gradina camping site near Burgas on Monday.

"The corpse of the dolphin was in such an advanced stage of decomposition that the identification of the species was impossible,” explained Tanya Manolova, head of the “Biological diversity, protected areas and species” department within the Regional Inspectorate of Environment and Water in Burgas.

Manolova added that it was not possible to determine whether the animal was killed, either, the Focus news agency informs.

In 2012 the number of dead dolphins found across the Bulgarian Black Sea coast was 74.
