At 08h20, Tuesday 16 August, NSRI Jeffreys Bay received a call from Greg Hofmeyer, from Bay World and the SA Stranding Network (SASN), regarding a 2.5 meter dolphin beached at the Botha Street Beach slipway at Paradise Beach, Jeffreys Bay.Greg requested the assistance of NSRI to take the dolphin that had stranded on the beach out to sea.NSRI Jeffreys Bay duty crew were activated and the sea rescue craft Project Group Rescuer was launched at the Paradise Beach Slipway where members of the Paradise Beach Neighbourhood Watch supported by many members of the local Paradise Beach community were taking care of the dolphin under the guidance of Malcolm Logan of the SA Stranding Network.The dolphin was secured into a carrying canvass and moved 100 meters down the beach by local community members and members of SASN to where our sea rescue craft could safely beach and the dolphin was loaded onto the sea rescue craft and transported to approximately 1 nautical mile out to sea and released.The dolphin swam away strongly and we are cautiously optimistic that the dolphin has survived.SASN and NSRI commend and thank the members of the Paradise Beach community for their efforts in the dolphin rescue.Image/Rieghard Janse van Rensburg Image/Rieghard Janse van RensburgImage/Eidie Janse van Rensburg Image/Eidie Janse van RensburgTO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE
