By Aaron Humes: The Sarteneja Association for Conservation and Development (SACD) has sadly informed of the premature death of a bottlenose dolphin calf found over the weekend.

On Saturday, January 29, SACD’s ranger team was called to the sight of a dead mammal washed up on the shore in the Los Pinos area near Sarteneja, in the Corozal Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

The animal was identified as a female bottle-nose dolphin measuring 130 centimeters or 51 inches (4.2 feet). A necropsy was conducted that found that death was a result of essential starvation – the calf had been separated from its mother and was unable to feed itself. There appeared to be no sign of injury on it.

If you see any aquatic mammal near your shores that shows distress or has washed up on the seafront, contact SACD personnel as soon as possible by calling 671-1440.
