SeaWorld Rescues Entangled Dolphin
SeaWorld's animal rescue team worked alongside Floridian marine experts to save an endangered dolphin.
On Friday 9th March SeaWorld experts rescued eight year old dolphin Seymour, found with his tail tangled in a discarded fishing line just of the coast of Southwest Florida.

On Friday 9th March SeaWorld’s animal rescue team worked with a group of marine rescue experts to release a dolphin, later named Seymour by dolphin researchers. Seymour was found just off the coast of Southwest Florida, tangled in a fishing line. 

“Discarded fishing line poses a very serious threat to all marine life, including manatees, sea turtles and dolphins like Seymour,” said Steve Lehr, from SeaWorld’s rescue team. “The easiest way to help is to always recycle fishing line properly in bins found at most docks.”
 
The entangled dolphin’s life was threatened by the fishing line, which had managed to tangle itself around the dolphin’s tail. Once the rescue experts managed to cut away the fishing line and secure the dolphin, they x-rayed the mammal with a mobile x-ray machine to check for any further injuries caused by the fishing line.
 
The experts took Seymour’s body measurements and tagged him with an identification number before releasing him back into the waters. Those of you with SeaWorld tickets will be aware of the amazing work that SeaWorld does with marine animals.
