Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute And FAU Harbor Branch, Conduct Most Extensive Radio-tracking Effort of IRL Bottlenose  Dolphins 

Hubbs-SeaWorld helped free a dolphin calf recently near Cocoa Beach that was entangled in a rope and monofilament fishing line..

A bottlenose dolphin nudged her calf for miles along the Indian River Lagoon, even though her calf was dead…“In one case, we had an animal push her dead calf for six or seven days,” says Megan Stolen, a research scientist with Hubbs Sea World. 

On Sunday morning, lifeguards found a dead, 2-to 3-foot-long dolphin stranded on the shore. The animal was taken to Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute to determine if red tide or something else is to blame for its death.
