All of the dol­phins swim­ming in­side the struc­ture have now left the en­clo­sure

THE last of the dol­phins in­side the shark bar­rier at Sor­rento beach headed out to sea last week.

The City of Joon­dalup con­trac­tor re­pair­ing the bar­rier could not close a fi­nal sec­tion un­til the dol­phins had swam out.

“All of the dol­phins that have been swim­ming in­side the struc­ture since last week­end have now left the en­clo­sure,” City chief ex­ec­u­tive Garry Hunt said on Fri­day.

“The dol­phins had been swim­ming in and out of a sec­tion of the bar­rier ex­tended 100m from Sor­rento beach whilst re­pairs were be­ing un­der­taken to the en­clo­sure, dam­aged by storms in late July.

“Depart­ment of Bio­di­ver­sity, Con­ser­va­tion and At­trac­tions of­fi­cers have been mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion and are sat­is­fied with the out­come.”
