It’s always a beautiful site to see dolphins or manatees swimming so close to shore, it’s one of the things that’s so unique about living here in South Florida. This video has not only made national headlines but also brought awareness to the issue of these illegal traps.

According to NBC 6, “footage shows the man, identified as Nick Tuduri by Florida Highway Patrol, jet skiing with a friend in Biscayne Bay when he notices a flailing dolphin. Immediately, Tuduri leaps into action

He notices the dolphin's tail is caught in a trap. Afraid that the female dolphin will drown, Tuduri reaches into his jet ski to grab a knife.”

To report a stranded marine mammal in the Southeast U.S., the NOAA asks that you call their marine mammal stranding 24-hour hotline at 1-877-WHALE HELP (1-877-942-5343).
