Harbour porpoise rescued

Theodore the harbour porpoise is on the road to recovery. Kylie Stanton reports. July 26, 2012.

Translated from Ecomare museum on Texel island in the Netherlands:

Harbour porpoise Ella getting better – 10 December 2013

It’s been very exciting times for porpoise Ella, but fortunately she is getting a lot better. The small toothed whale stranded on 18 October on the Texel beach. While being cared for by SOS Dolfijn it soon became clear that the porpoise had breathing problems. It turned out she had pneumonia. For more than two weeks, day and night, volunteers and staff supported her in the water because she could not swim herself. Now that the medication is working, things go well. Meanwhile, she swims all by herself.

More about Ella is on the SOS Dolfijn site.
