IMBRSea's thesis research gives clue on the disappearance of famous Irish dolphin

Recently graduated Kim Ellen Ludwig had her thesis cited as a possible explanation for the disappearance of 'Fungie', a bottlenose dolphin that has lived for decades near the Dingle Peninsula in the far southwest of Ireland. Fungie's notoriety comes from being the world’s longest-living ‘friendly’ resident dolphin. It's been more than 2 weeks that he is missing from his area. The news and the search for the dolphin have gripped the country in the past days.
