NEW YORK (WABC) – Roxanne the Risso’s Dolphin who was injured and rehabilitated on Long Island is back in the ocean, swimming with her friends.
Roxanne didn’t begin to relax until she was 10 miles offshore.
It’s where her heart finally stopped racing and the marine biologists who rescued her began to breathe again.
“She’s doing great! She’s really very calm, she’s exactly the way we want her to be,” said Kim Durham, the Riverhead Foundation.
Dolphin strandings don’t often end this way.
Roxanne washed-ashore near Fire Island back in June. She was badly diseased and barely alive.
“She was at death’s door,” Durham said.
The staff at Long Island’s Riverhead Foundation spent the summer nursing Roxanne back to health. Then, raised thousands of dollars for her release including contributions from Eyewitness News viewers and local schoolchildren.
