App to help stranded dolphins

WPTV_dolphin_20131202135314_320_240If you are a boater or a regular beach visitor along the Florida coast of the USA there’s now an easy way to  help aid a stranded or injured dolphin or whale.

NOAA Fisheries is offering a new smartphone app that can be used to alert  officials about a stranded sea creature.

“Dolphin & Whale 911” enables residents in the southeastern US to immediately  report live or dead stranded, injured or entangled marine mammals by connecting  them to the nearest stranding response hotline, detected through your phone’s  internal GPS system.
