Clyde, a rare Risso's dolphin, is released back into the Gulf on Feb. 10 with help from Mote Marine Laboratory staff, volunteers and friends. Clyde was outfitted with a satellite-linked radio transmitter that signaled he was surfacing about every 90 seconds just after his release. He will help scientists at Mote and other research centers learn more about the species.
