Check out this great video of a rescued baby La Plata River dolphin being nursed back to health at SOS Rescate Fauna Marina in Uruguay. The 10-day old dolphin was found by people walking on a beach near the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo with no sign of a mother nearby. The little dolphin named Nipper was apparently injured in a fishing net, an all-too-common occurrence in the area. Over 1,500 adult dolphins are caught in gill nets along the 4,000km coastline of Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. SOS Rescate Fauna Marina was founded in 1993 and helps in the rescue and rehabilitation adult and baby dolphins in the area among other animals.
