A mutual aid chain was set up after the discovery of a blue and white dolphin, stranded on the rocks, in Concarneau (Finistère), this Monday.

The cetacean was alive and only flayed, reports



He was found around 8 a.m. by two students from the Nautical Institute of Brittany.

After making a first attempt to put it back in the water, a restorer, having observed the scene, contacted the firefighters and the Marinarium, explain our colleagues.

2,000 marine animals stranded each year

Under the instructions of Antoine Chabrolle, environmental engineer at the Marine Station and referent for strandings, the firefighters hoisted the animal on an orange stretcher.

He was then taken by boat offshore where he could be released.

According to Willy Dabin, in charge of the National Strandings Network in La Rochelle, nearly 2,000 animals are stranded each year on the French coasts and only 3% of them are still alive.
