March - Dolphin Awareness Month
In commemoration of the admirable rescue, research and educational work done by the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network, March has been designated as Dolphin Awareness month.
"Stranding season" in the Texas Gulf Coast happens during the months of February, March and April.
In some areas, the Network recovers from 10 to 20 animals a week during stranding season. When animals are recovered alive, the network provides rescue and rehabilitation including medical treatment and 24x7 observation.
Ninety percent of the mammals recovered are bottlenose dolphins.
