Joint Dolphin Recovery Operation - The Fisherman

Joint Dolphin Recovery Operation

Environmental Conservation Officers Kochanowski, Michalet, Hilton, and Smith responded to a report of a deceased dolphin on the beach in Kings Point. The ECOs arrived and found the dolphin in an area under construction, making it nearly impossible to remove the dolphin by land. The Officers coordinated with the U.S. Coast Guard Station at Kings Point to deploy a boat for assistance. The ECOs tied a line to the dolphin, pulled it out along a dock, and transferred it to the Coast Guard for towing back to their station. The dolphin was then transported to the Atlantic Marine Conservation Society for necropsy.
