When strolling on the beach, there are certain things you expect to see. Towels, perhaps an abandoned beach ball, and unfortunately plenty of litter. What you don’t usually expect to see is a marine animal. After all, they’re meant for the ocean, not land! Sometimes, however, these animals end up on the shore and, unfortunately, if enough time passes without human intervention, they die.
Recently, a dolphin found himself in this situation. Luckily for him, there was a kind person passing by who happened to spot him. While normally in this situation the best course of action is to contact a wildlife professional, we can’t help but be amazed at how swiftly this kind fellow acted, picking up the dolphin who was so clearly struggling. He brought the animal to the ocean and waited patiently until he darted away. We sure are glad this man was able to bring this dolphin back to his natural habitat!
