Stranding at Larano's beach
Yesterday 6th of October the Whale Museum team rushed to another stranding, this time of an adult Atlantic Spotted Dolphin at Larano's beach in Porto da Cruz. The animal was collected for a subsequent necropsy in order to determine the cause of death and collect scientific samples and data related to the biology and ecology of the species.
The stranding alert was given by a member of the public who found the animal the day before. We remember that if you encounter a stranded cetacean you should contact No. 924432091
