CMC – Bahamian authorities say they have been able to rescue five dolphins that had been left abandoned at Blackbeard’s Cay/Balmoral Island.

Media reports said that the dolphins were allegedly left to starve after a once popular tourist attraction shut down during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a brief statement, the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources said the rescue efforts to remove the five dolphns, named Fiona, Harry, Diamond, Justice and Pigeon took place between Thursday night and Friday morning.

“The dolphins have been transported to Atlantis’ Animal Care facility for further observation, medical attention and continued care,” the Ministry of Agriculture and Marine Resources said in the statement, adding that more details will be shared during a press conference on Monday.
