SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue Team is currently providing round-the-clock care for a seven-foot, 93-kilogram male bottlenose dolphin who was brought to the SeaWorld Orlando Rehabilitation Centre after being found stranded in Sanibel, Florida.

The dolphin arrived at SeaWorld Orlando at 12:15 a.m. on Wednesday and SeaWorld’s veterinarians and rescuers began to immediately care for the animal by providing fluids, antibiotics and conducting a complete health assessment. The team has continued to monitor the dolphin since his arrival to ensure his condition stabilized.

SeaWorld veterinarians say the dolphin is a strong swimmer, which is a positive sign. The team remains cautiously optimistic at this time, and hopeful the animal will continue to improve.
