The end may be in sight for the dolphin die-off along panhandle shores. There have been no reports of any dolphins washing ashore since Saturday.

More than 100 have died since the beginning of March. The team of biologists that came here to study the problem has left the area, signaling an end to the die-off.

"It seems to be coming to an end. As the on-site coordinator it's my job to bring it to an end. If there are no more deaths by Monday, I will request that," says On-Site Coordinator Ron Hardy.

Biologists still believe red tide is the most likely culprit in the die-off. Test results should be in soon.
