The article talks about a large pod of dolphins seen close to the shore of East Hampton in New York. Residents were treated to a rare natural spectacle when they saw dolphins close to shore. After a couple days, however, it became evident that several dolphins were actually trapped in the shallow waters of North Creek and Department of Environmental Conservation Marine Resources staff and environmental conservation officers would need to organize a multi-agency rescue effort.
