Dolphin found dead stuck in buoy in Puerto Vallarta

Staff of the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (Profepa) recovered the body of a bottlenose dolphin at El Holli Beach in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco.

In coordination with Civil Protection and the Puerto Vallarta Department of Ecology, the recovery of the body was carried out, for which the Network of Attention for Stranding of Marine Mammals proticol was carried out.

Members of the Participatory Environmental Vigilance Committee Guardians of the Bay made the report of the dolphin’s body that was adrift and stuck in one of the buoys on the beach known as El Holli.

During the process, it was observed that the wildlife specimen had an anchor attached to the caudal fin, which led to it being stuck in the buoy, Profepa said in a statement.

It was not possible to determine the causes of the death of the specimen due to the advanced state of decomposition in which the remains were found.

The bottlenose dolphin is listed in the NOM-059-SEMARNAT-2010, under the status of subject to special protection (Pr), considering that species like this could be threatened by factors that negatively affect its viability.
