Marian Locksley's curator insight, March 20, 2013 4:30 AM

While heading out on a fishing trip yesterday morning along the Gold Coast, Burt and a friend ran across a beached dolphin. Lying 150 feet from the water line, the stranded animal appeared to have been trapped by the quickly receding tide and was now clinging to life in the sand.

 

"We thought he was dead to start with," says Burt. "But when he saw us it was like, 'The rescuers (are) coming to get me'. He was excited."

Marian Locksley's curator insight, January 30, 2013 3:11 AM

We’re talking about a staggering and unprecedented amount of harm to more than 40 species of marine mammals that should give any federal agency involved, be it the Navy or the National Marine Fisheries Service, pause,” said Zak Smith, attorney with NRDC’s marine mammal project. “NMFS has been charged by Congress to protect these mammals, not sanction their deaths.  Giving the Navy the green light to harm marine mammals 31 million times is completely counter to NMFS mission and common sense.”
