GALVESTON – Dolphins that beach themselves on a Texas shoreline can be a fairly common sight — about 130 to 150 strandings occur every year in Texas — and the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network is the organization that rescues and recovers them.

Sarah Piwetz, a doctoral student in marine biology at TAMUG, is the assistant stranding coordinator and helps direct fellow students who wish to offer their services.
