    Seven stranded dolphins are “doing great,” said International Fund for Animal Welfare after getting beached at low tide in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, on May 18. Dozens of people, including IFAW, trained volunteers, and AmeriCorps members offered their help to get the Atlantic white-sided dolphins in Wellfleet back into the water, said ifaw. Source: Storyful News & Weather/Youtube Footage released by the organization show staff members and volunteers wrapping the dolphins in cooling blankets and transporting them across a beach. “Our team faced the increased difficulty of rising waters, but we know from experience that it’s not an option to leave the dolphins in this area, because they often get caught in a repetitive cycle of tides and restrand,” said animal rescue officer Misty Niemeyer. “The first course of action when we arrived was to coordinate how best to access the dolphins and get our equipment out to their challenging location,” Misty Niemeyer, an animal rescue officer for IFAW’s Marine Mammal Rescue & Research team, said. Although one of the dolphins appeared a bit stressed, they appeared alert and in...

    GRAND COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) — Three snowmobile riders were found and returned to civilization Friday in an overnight rescue operation that lasted almost 15 hours. The three young men from Minnesota were “lost, stuck and stranded” after dark northeast of Tabernash, Grand County Search and Rescue explained in a Facebook post. The men were also separated. Two of the men were located at 2:30 a.m. Saturday near Lonesome Peak, not far from Grand County’s border with the Indian Peaks Wilderness.

    Republican members of Congress are celebrating their successful rescue efforts of an American mother and her young children stranded in Afghanistan after President Joe Biden's chaotic military evacuation abandoned up to 200 American citizens and thousands of Afghan special immigrant visa applicants. US officials confirmed it was the first successful government-led land evacuation since the withdrawal effort began. Oklahoma conservative Rep. Markwayne Mullin posted a photo on Twitter Monday morning of an American citizen named Mariam surrounded by her three small children. Mullin said he had been contacted by a friend 'a little over three weeks ago' asking if he could do anything to help the young mother and her three children, who also hold US passports.  'Mariam had gone to visit her parents for the first time with the kids and became trapped in Kabul when the Taliban overran the city. We left two weeks ago today to get her, the children, and others out,' the lawmaker wrote. The father of six said his team worked 'around the clock' and encountered numerous setbacks but perservered.

    Wildlife conservations have been working against time to rescue nine endangered giraffes stranded on a flooding Kenyan island and their efforts have finally paid off with the last two being brought to shore. A small calf named Noelle and her mother Ngarikoni were loaded onto the same steel barge that carried the other seven one-mile through Lake Baringo to the Roku Conservancy. The herd crossed what was once a peninsula to feed, but days of intense rain cut off access to the mainland and imprisoned them on Longicharo Island. Ngarikoni gave birth to Noelle while on the island and were the last to be saved due to the extra cared needed to move such a young giraffe. 'Relief and elation emanated from the rescue team as little Noelle stepped confidently off the custom-built barge and onto dry land, followed by her mother, marking the successful conclusion of this ambitious rescue,' the rescuers shard in a statement.

    An experienced hiker over the age of 50 was stranded in the Santa Fe National Forest for 14 days and was finally rescued when a stranger heard his desperate calls for help. The frantic two-day rescue mission unfolded on Saturday when hiker John Utsey was walking with his kids up Winsor Trail.
