Beached Dolphin Recovering In Gulfport

A young dolphin is recovering at a Gulfport facility after being rescued late Wednesday night.

The 2-year-old male dolphin was found beached in Grand Isle, Louisiana. His mother was no where to be found.

A team from the Institute of Marine Mammal Studies transported him overnight to their temporary facilities on the Industrial Seaway. It will be the first rehabilitation for the facility.

The dolphin will remain under quarantine for about a month until he's nursed back to health.
