Whales, Dolphins, Porpoise, Seals ... exciting news and exotic jobs around the World.
The good news is that the white-bellied dolphin, according to Marine Dept., has now been freed with the help of Mark from the Fisheries Dept. and Glen Rogers, a Lappa Member and a very helpful neighbour with her canoe. The sad news is that there is absolutely nothing to stop this from happening over and over again. This area has been a lake for many years and all the mud and silt that has been deposited here with the incoming tide in very uneven mud flats has made the area extremely treacherous for both human and our friendly mammals that come in with the tide. Today it ended happily, but what about tomorrow and the many other tomorrows??
poor one...is this dolphin a white-beaked dolphin by any chance?
NOTHING TO BE DONE??? Let Nature take its course when the tide comes back in? The dolphin will DROWN when the tide comes back in if it is still stuck.I'm glad that the being was refloated, but disgusted by the ignorance displayed by the Riverview Fire Chief.
To many trekies got jobs and think the Star Trek "Prime Directive" applies here on earth. Use you "compassion gene" folks!!! Jeez
