Recovered porpoise Ella back in the North Sea


This video is called Harbour Porpoise Species Identification.

Dutch news agency ANP reports that harbour porpoise Ella has been freed on 14 January 2014 after recovery from illness.

On 18 October 2013, Ella had beached on Texel island. In the SOS Dolfijn centre in Harderwijk, she recovered from pneumonia. A bus brought her back to the North Sea where she swims again now.

Harbour porpoises lead solitary lives. So, contrary to when releasing killer whales, they don’t have to be brought back to their pod.
