The Risso’s dolphin is a 9-foot, 600-pound female. Staff from the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation made the rescue Thursday near Oak Beach with help from the Coast Guard.
The male dolphin was hampered by kidney stones, gastric ulcers and parasites, according to Kimberly Durham of the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation.
Two whales were found beached Sunday on separate stretches on the shores of East Hampton.
The turtle has been taken to the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation where veterinarians will try to remove a hook that has become lodged in the animal’s esophagus.
A finback whale that washed up dead on a New York beach likely was killed when it was hit by a passing ship.
