A Young Stranded Dolphin on the Central Beach in Burgas Was Rrescued
The Regional Inspectorate for Environment and Water – Burgas managed to save a dolphin that landed on the shore after a signal from the “Green Phone”. The dolphin came ashore on the Central Beach in Burgas, near the restaurant “Neptune”.
The dolphin is a young specimen of the short-beaked common Black Sea dolphin (Delphinus delphis), with no visible external injuries. Going ashore is a common behavior of animals that are sick, according to NAFA.
Thanks to the quick intervention and assistance of representatives of the Municipality of Burgas and the Executive Agency for Fisheries and Aquaculture, the dolphin was returned to the sea.
The Regional Inspectorate reminds that the three species of Black Sea dolphins – Black Sea harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena relicta), bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) and short-beaked common dolphin (Delphinus delphis)., are protected species. Their “disturbance, persecution, capture, killing, as well as the taking of found dead specimens” is prohibited.
