Dolphin washes ashore
This is at least the third striped dolphin to wash ashore along the Northwest coast in the last decade. In January 2006, a striped dolphin washed ashore at Fort Stevens State Park. The dolphins are uncommon here. Striped dolphins prefer warmer waters and are typically found in the offshore waters off of California and Baja, the aquarium said.
