Dolphins rescued at El Tesoro Beach

Date Published:

A successful rescue operation was carried out by the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa) after they were alerted to the fate of 10 dolphins stranded in shallow water at El Tesorso beach, in the municipality of La Paz.  

The Profepa team found nine of the dolphins to be alive and in good health – 8 long beaked common dolphins and one common bottlenose dolphin. Sadly one had died - a long beaked common dolphin – and has been taken to the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur for an autopsy to be performed.

Bites marks on a number of the dolphins suggests that there had been a fight between the two species. And it was likely that the single bottlenose dolphin led the pod of long beak dolphins towards the beach where they got stranded due to the low tides.

The 9 live dolphins were safely released back into deep waters.
