AIRLIFT OF DOLPHIN SCHEDULED TODAY
 
      SARASOTA, Fla., Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coast Guard C130 airlift
of an ailing bottlenose dolphin is still scheduled for today,
October 20, 1995.  The Coast Guard will utilize a routine training
flight to carry out this rescue mission.  The dolphin, named Benny, will
be transported from the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS)
laboratory in Beaufort, North Carolina to Mote Marine Laboratory's Ann
and Alfred Goldstein Marine Mammal Center in an effort to rehabilitate
and eventually release him back into the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
    Since his stranding on September 18, Benny has made some
improvements but his condition remains critical.  He is believed to be
suffering from a variety of problems including persistent infections and
gastrointestinal problems which limit his ability to dive.
    "Benny has received excellent care at the NMFS lab but they are not
equipped to treat marine mammals.  If he is to recover fully and go back
to the wild, he must receive that care at a mammal facility such as
Mote's," explained Jay Gorzelany, head of Mote's Marine Mammal Stranding
team.
    Arrival time at Sarasota-Bradenton Airport is expected at 12:30 p.m.
today.  Updates will be available via World Wide Web at the following
