A small dolphin was rescued early today, April 29, 2021 off the coast of Oroquieta City. The said dolphin was found alive along the beach right across Novo Hotel. Rescuers tried to push the sea mammal back to the sea but the waves brought it back to the shore. Rescuers observed that the dolphin seemed disoriented and without balance so they brought it to the city’s fish sanctuary for it to stabilize and be monitored.
Photos below show Oroquieta City Mayor Lemuel Acosta visiting the dolphin at the fish sanctuary where it is being monitored.
