Another dolphin dead on Javea shore


THE STORMS experienced this winter have brought many dead cetaceans to the shores of the Marina Alta and last week was no exception as a listed dolphin washed up in the surf in Le Cala Sardinera (cove) in Javea on Monday.

Access to the cove is by footpath and hikers alerted 112 after finding the dolphin, who, on arrival, identified it as a listed Stenella Coeruleoable, whose most remarkable feature is the distinctive pattern of blue and white stripes along the body.

Expert biologists and veterinarians of 112 removed the corpse and will perform a necropsy.

The January storms dragged a dolphin to the same cove, which rotted on the beach. A Grampus Griseus was also found on the shore in Denia.
