Veterinarians from Shedd Aquarium joined in an international effort to rescue and relocate a group of 15 endangered Bolivian dolphins.
The dolphins were trapped in a shrinking lake in a remote part of central Bolivia, nearly 4,000 miles away. The animals were in grave danger and required a massive rescue effort. Shedd's Animal Response Team traveled to Bolivia to take part in the rescue, giving the dolphins medical exams and satellite tags.
The team will take another trip to help rescue more dolphins from the shrinking lake.
