Dolphins and other cetaceans can get stranded for a variety of causes, including disorientation or other serendipitous circumstances such as unexpected shifts in the tide.
Individually or in huge numbers, these marine animals can become stranded, prompting environmentalists and animal lovers to mobilize to restore them to the depths of the sea.
The rescue of two dolphins who became stranded in Cuba, notably in the Cojmar neighborhood in eastern Havana, has recently gone viral.
The rescue was made possible by a group of young people who did not hesitate to intervene in order to save two dolphins that had washed up on the shore of a nearby beach.
Jandro Gácita, a Cuban Fire Department Rescue and Rescue volunteer, released the rescue report.
On September 12, the event happened on the Cojmar reefs. Fortunately, some young individuals worked together and organized themselves to successfully return the dolphins to the water in perfect health.
The spectacular rescue technique was captured on camera and posted by Facebook user Luis Gómez. In the video, young people are seen grabbing the dolphins by the tails and bringing them out to sea.
They performed the surgery with extreme caution, ensuring that the dolphins were continually in contact with the water; otherwise, they may have been dehydrated, resulting in a catastrophe.
Fortunately, the bathers embarked on an unbelievable rescue mission without injuring them. It didn’t take long for the achievement to be recognized by the community, and the young people were dubbed great heroes. Some users conveyed their thanks and awe, as evidenced by the following:
“Wonderful effort assisting endangered creatures.”
Another user commented:
“A heartfelt creation for animals, especially the rare dolphins, and a sweet cushiony gesture!”
Another commenter on the internet said:
“Bravo. Really admirable in these times. They would have been eaten somewhere else, I believe.”
