Young dolphin rescued

Dolphin rescue this morning.
A young dolphin of about 150lbs weight appeared to be lost in very shallow water in the sandy bay of San Sebastian de La Gomera early this morning. Officers of the environmental police unit  SEPRONA transported the animal with the help of some locals to the yacht harbour from where the dolphin was transferred to a boat which then bvrought it to deep water off the coast to be released there. The dolphin appeared to be be completely healthy and uninjured and there is no explanation why it ended up so close to shore. The waters off La Gomera's south coast are renowned for their abundance of cetaceans and more than 20 different species of dolphins and whales are regularly spotted there. On La Gomera only environmentally sensitive and respectful whale watching is tolerated.
