    SeaWorld Rescues Newborn Dolphin | Inside Conservation Blog

    Weighing slightly less than 35 pounds, this baby dolphin was found stranded in shallow waters under a mangrove. SeaWorld’s animal care experts believe the dolphin is no more than five days old due to its size, the upright stature of its dorsal fin and the attached umbilical cord at the time of rescue.Preliminary tests have showed no major health issues but to ensure the young animal gets the essential nutrients he needs, SeaWorld’s animal team is tube-feeding the dolphin every two hours. Dolphin calves typically nurse from their mother until they are 12 to 18 months old. This calf was probably separated from his mother before becoming stranded.The successful rescue of this dolphin was made possible by a collaborative effort: the Hubbs-SeaWorld Research Institute initially checked on the state of the young calf, and SeaWorld Orlando was able to rescue it shortly after – following authorization by NOAA Fisheries Service.

    team is on call 24/7 to save and care for injured, orphaned or ill animals. This is the first bottlenose dolphin to be rescued this year.
    THANK YOU SEAWORLD! I love all the good you do!

    Way to go seaworld!!

    SeaWorld rescues an average of 200 stranded sea lions, seals, pelicans and other marine species each year, giving a second chance to animals that would otherwise not survive.

    SeaWorld has rescued over 13,000 animals since they opened. Personally I am grateful they still exist.
