June 17th, 2014 (InsideCostaRica.com) Tourist Police responded to a young dolphin that had swum ashore at Playa Hermosa de Osa yesterday afternoon.
The officers initially attempted to return the dolphin to the water, but it returned to the beach minutes later.
Concerned for the animal’s health, officers contacted a veterinarian in nearby Uvita, who responded to the scene and confirmed that the dolphin was in need of medical care.
Officers then contacted the KETO Foundation in Heredia, an organization that specializes in the rescue and rehabilitation of dolphins, sea turtles, and other marine wildlife and were able to make arrangements for the animal’s care and a vehicle to transport the dolphin to KETO’s facilities.
