Winter weather increases dolphin, turtle strandings

There are 2 comments on the story from Dec 13, 2009, titled Winter weather increases dolphin, turtle strandings. In it, reports that:

The high tides and harsh winds have wreaked havoc on marine mammals in the past 10 days, causing several dolphin strandings, according to a local animal rescue official. The high tides, strong winds and now bitter cold have combined to make it difficult for the marine mammals moving through the region, Harry said. It was 2-degrees with the wind chill at Rock Harbor Friday, Harry said.

The past week and a half has brought almost "a dolphin a day" stranding on Cape shorelines, said C.T. Harry, assistant coordinator of the International Fund for Animal Welfare's stranding network. Most of the stranded dolphins have died, although at least two were successfully released back into deeper water. Harry said. Dolphins aren't the only marine animals struggling with the harsh weather conditions. More than 100 endangered Kemp's ridley turtles have required rescue in recent weeks.
