MARINE LIFE
Freed dolphins back in the swim


KEY LARGO - (AP) -- Seven rehabilitated rough-tooth dolphins released off the Florida Keys more than a week ago were located Tuesday between the southern Bahamas and eastern Cuba, marine officials said.

Data received from satellite transponders attached to two of the mammals tracked them to about 70 miles north of Guardalavaca, Cuba, said Randall Wells, director of the Mote Marine Laboratory's Center for Marine Mammal and Sea Turtle Research.

The Bahamian Coast Guard visually sighted all seven dolphins off the southern tip of Andros Island Saturday afternoon, said Robert Lingenfelser, president of the Marine Mammal Conservancy in Key Largo.

The mammals were among 68 that stranded March 2 on a mud flat near Marathon in the middle of the Florida Keys.

The dolphins are thought to have traveled about 500 miles together since their release May 3 off Key Largo, Lingenfelser said.

''We're very pleased with the progress of these animals,'' he said.
