Dolphin dies during beach rescue near Aberystwyth (Wales, UK)

common-dolphin-Ceredigion-beach-UKMarch 24th, 2016. A dolphin has died after becoming stranded on a Ceredigion beach – despite efforts from coastguards.

The female common dolphin died in Ynyslas, near Aberystwyth, before it could be refloated, while awaiting an assessment from a marine vet.

Surfers alerted Natural Resources Wales once they spotted the dolphin, thought to be about 18 months old, on 18 March.

A post-mortem examination will be completed to help understand how the dolphin became stranded.
