Living near the ocean, we see the triumph and tragedy of the life of dolphins - often in the same day.

The Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine has reported that there have been at least two dead dolphins that have washed up on local beaches in the past two days - the first was reported in Sea Isle City.

Meanwhile the "Cape May Whale Watcher" reports it's been an excellent year for both dolphin and whale watching, especially in the Delaware Bay.
