International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) volunteer, Mike Giblin, of Eastham, MA watches for signs of distress amongst a group of recently stranded common dolphins (including a mother and calf) in an IFAW rescue vehicle while they wait to be released back into Cape Cod Bay at Scusset Beach in Sagamore Beach, MA.  The dolphins are just a few of an estimated 30 dolphins that stranded along Cape Cod Bay's shores from Dennis to Wellfleet.  11 dolphins were successfully released back into the bay by a team from the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and the New England Aquarium.  "This might be the largest dolphin stranding geographically speaking that we've had," says Brian Sharp, IFAW's stranding coordinator.
