The village residents reported it to the barangay officials who also informed the municipal administrator.

Staff from Lumba project responded and checked the dolphin to see if there were plastics inside its stomach, but they instead discovered injuries on its body.

They, however, cannot tell if the injuries were the cause of its death. The dolphin was buried at the said beach.
