– Entangled dolphin calf rescued

Yesterday we helped lead a multi-agency rescue of an entangled bottlenose dolphin calf in the Indian River Lagoon. The calf was badly entangled with fishing line embedded in her tail – we’d been following the calf and planning a rescue since she was first seen earlier this month. We’ll monitor the calf and her mother over the next few weeks to make sure they continue to do well. We encourage everyone to help clean up waters ways by recycling fishing line and reporting injured animals to the proper agency.
