ANNOUNCE: Born Free Foundation Rescues 2 Dolphins in Turkey

Following a dramatic 48 hours of negotiations, the Born Free Foundation has secured the release of two dolphins, Tom and Misha, from a small concrete swimming pool in the Turkish town of Hisaronu. The appalling conditions in the pool caused many to fear for the dolphins’ deteriorating health and to speculate whether they would survive. Water samples revealed harmful bacterial counts 10 times higher than would be permissible under internationally accepted captive marine mammal standards.

The dolphins are now in a temporary sea pen off the coast undergoing a thorough medical assessment. The move was made possible thanks to the cooperation of Turkish authorities and was facilitated through Born Free’s Turkish project partners (S.A.D.), who have provided the sea and coastal facilities that eventually could enable Misha and Tom’s rehabilitation back to the wild. Born Free Foundation has launched a $230,000 appeal that will pay for the rescue of the animals, all care costs, rehabilitation and, hopefully, their return Back to the Blue. Read more about their rescue.
