Released captive dolphin seen with calf in South Korea

The Korea Herald reports that researchers from the Dolphin Research Group of Jeju University/Ewha Womans University in South Korea have confirmed that an Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin that was released from captivity back into the wild, has been seen with a new calf.

The dolphin, known as Sampal (D38), was released into the waters off the island of Jeju after being rehabilitated in a seapen after a court ruled that she and four other dolphins had been illegally caught and held in marine parks. The dolphins were released in 2013 and have been since been seen with groups of other wild dolphins. The calf is thought to be around 4-6 months old.
