DOE crews track dolphin for hours

A juvenile dolphin that was sighted in
the waters off Seven
Mile Beach Thursday morning and tracked by Department of Environment officials, has taken off
again.

“We
are all very optimistic that it will reunite with its pod,” said Department of Environment Director Gina Ebanks-Petrie. “The MRCU mosquito
plane made several turns around the island searching for the family, but
unfortunately it was not seen.

“Without locating its pod, a young dolphin will
be unable to survive alone so we can only hope for the best.” 

Department
staffers tracked the dolphin by boat for several hours, but just after noon the
dolphin took off – headed for deep water off North West
Point in West Bay.
