El Niño is starting to take its first wildlife victims in Peru, a total of 105 animals, reported the country's marine institute, Instituto del Mar del Peru (IMARPE). For a second consecutive day, IMARPE staff finds dolphins, turtles, sea pigs and other animals on the coast of Lambayeque in northwestern Peru.

Because of El Niño, the top levels of water are warming and the fish that are meant to feed marine animals are diving deeper to find colder layers. As a result, many of the animals get entangled in the fishing nets after they have come to the coast searching for food.
