Throughout their rehabilitation programme, improving the dolphins’ health has been a top priority for Born Free’s veterinary consultant John Knight. John said, “As a welfare and conservation organisation Tom and Misha’s wellbeing has always been at the top of our agenda. To this end we have monitored them daily, with veterinary intervention and prophylactic care given as required. An important aspect of this monitoring process has been the regular collection and examination of blood and other samples. Taken together, this has allowed us to follow their health and welfare in great detail, and ensure that their release poses no risk to other wildlife in the area.”
