Rescued Dolphin Transferred to Galveston

July 4, 2022

After 6 days of acute medical care at the Texas State Aquarium’s Wildlife Rescue Center, the rescued female dolphin was found to be in a stable condition for the next step of her journey. 

Under the direction and recommendation of NOAA Fisheries, the habituated dolphin was transferred to Galveston for further rehabilitation and monitoring.

Our veterinary and rescue teams worked around the clock during her stay to keep her safe. This dolphin’s quick and necessary medical intervention is one more example of how skills learned at the Aquarium can be applied to rescuing and rehabilitating wild animals.

For further and official updates regarding the condition of the dolphin, please follow NOAA Fisheries and the Texas Marine Stranding Network.
