Three Rehabed Dolphins released - Florida

Mote Marine Laboratory has released the three remaining Rough-toothed dolphins which stranded 6/8/04.

Essex BDMLR Coordinator sent me the following text and images direct from Mote. Faye was at Mote when these dolphins were starting their rehabiliatation.

Dolphins were all released about 18 miles east of Ft. Pierce, FL yesterday (3rd March) morning at about 10:30 am. All three had satellite transmitters and we are already receiving data from all three animals. Last night late, all three were together about 50 miles east of Melbourne, FL. 5/3 The three dolphins are still together and are headed NNE. They are about 100 miles east of Jacksonville, FL. 3/7 Dolphins have turned more east and are not moving such great distances now. Last full report still had them all together.
