But the not-for-profit foundation has its hands busy dealing with a new crisis to answer our calls about some lost dolphins.
So the same day that the second dolphin was spotted, a grey, spotted seal pup was spotted in Bridgehampton. Riverhead tracked the animal throughout the upcoming weeks, frequently updating its status on Facebook. And then there were more seals, possibly? But then yesterday, tragedy struck twice:
Today has been another busy day for biologists. We picked up a dead harbor porpoise in Amagansett and checked on two seals. One seal was in East Hampton but went back into the water. A second seal in Westhampton is in route back to the hospital. We’ve had several reports today of seals throughout the East End going in and out of the water. Please report all sightings to (631)369-9829.
Nooo! Come on! We need some less depressing marine news around here. So what’s up with those dolphins?
