When a group of Indonesian fishermen stumbled across a pod of dolphins stranded in shallow waters in the province of East Nusa Tenggara, they dropped their rods and immediately sprang into action.
"Seeing the dolphins stranded on the beach, the fishermen managed to drive them into the deep water," district official Luther Dira Tome told local Antara News. 40 blue whales were also stranded near the dolphins, and locals report that some of them have been dying.
The stranding, and others like it, have been connected to the 2009 Montara oil well explosion in the Timor Sea. Local conservation officials say that the waters have been contaminated with toxins from the spill, causing marine mammals to act erratically.
