Marine conservationists are in a race to save "Tala," hoping it would become the first stranded dolphin to survive in this part of the country.

The 1.8-meter rough-toothed dolphin was found on Bolo beach on July 2 and was taken by the Alaminos City tourism staff to the station where it underwent treatment and rehabilitation.
But Lemnuel Aragones, president of the P ...
