Dear Veronica:

I'm afraid I don't know anything about the "listed dolphin" epidemic.  Do
you have access to Biological or Zoological Abstracts at your local
university?  If you run a search through the scientific papers published
after 1991, you might get lucky and find this elusive epidemic.

You could also try running "dolphin" and "epidemic" through the search
engine at WhaleNet.

And if neither of those work, you might send a query out through MARMAN, a
server that many marine mammalogists subscribe to:
