On March 5th something very strange occurred along the coastline in Rio De Janerio. A heavy current caused nearly 30 dolphins to wash up on shore and become stranded in the shallow sandy waters. As a practically instant reaction, local beach goers decided to take action. They dragged the dolphins one by one back into the deeper water so they could return to the ocean. This is a great example of how we can take a hands on approach in helping our environment. This touching video has become quite the internet sensation and the sunbathing beachcombers definitely go in my book as environmental heroes!
