Staff of the Dolphins Plus Marine Mammal Responder team transport four spinner dolphins that were rescued Saturday, Sept. 3, 2016, after stranding off a small island about 20 miles north of Islamorada in Florida Bay off the Florida Keys. Normally a deepwater species, a DPMMC official believes it is possible that Hurricane Hermine, when it was over the Gulf of Mexico, could have pushed the dolphins to shallow waters. The dolphins are being evaluated for possible transport to Sea World in Orlando for further treatment.
