IFAW’s Marine Mammal Rescue team mobilized after reports that a pod of dolphins were trapped in the mud flats off Wellfleet, MA. A total of sixteen dolphins were found stranded in two locations, ten in Drummer’s Cove and six in Loagy Bay.

In Loagy Bay, four of the dolphins were rescued but one was found dead and another was in such poor health it had to be euthanized. In Drummer’s Cove, two dolphins were rescued but rescuers were unable to free eight others from waist-deep mud.

Solomon Islands export dolphins to Dubai

“This export should not have taken place.  It undermines the good reputation that the Solomon Islands Government has built up since taking the decision to ban the export of live dolphins in 2005.  We implore the Government to reinstate that ban immediately for the sake of the Solomon Island’s precious marine wildlife and their standing on the international stage,” Mick McIntyre, Director of IFAW Asia Pacific, said.
 
Recent research by IFAW has shown that the diversity of both whale and dolphin species in waters of the Solomon Islands

Watershed decision for the conservation of marine organisms

Publication Date:

Shark fishing is mainly carried out with drift gill nets measuring close to two kilometers long, as well as long lines of up to 70 kilometers in length with thousands of hooks. The drift gill nets have been called walls of death because they catch all marine organisms.

These nets are the main threat to cetaceans. Most of the captures around the world occur in gill and drift nets, in the case of whales, dolphins and porpoises (84% of captures), for seals and sea lions (98% of catches)[1].

“It is a historic victory for endangered primates and marine mammals, for environmental groups and for the general public,” said Beatriz Bugeda, Director of IFAW Latin America. “This decision is critical to conservation policy in Mexico, which was seriously eroded by environmental authorities in recent years.”

In 2003, the Department of the Environment and Natural Resources (SEMARNAT) illegally authorized the importation of 28 dolphins from the Solomon Islands to Mexican-based commercial dolphinariums.
