Naude Dreyer has probably seen a ton of wildlife up close while he’s owned and operated Pelican Point Kayaking in Namibia.
But we can’t imagine he’s ever had an experience quite like the one he had yesterday while returning from a tour.

Dreyer found a juvenile male Benguela (or Heaviside’s) dolphin helplessly beached on the shore. Hoping to help the little guy out, he quickly assessed the situation and decided to try to get him back in the water.

Watch what happened when Dreyer coaxed him in…

While sometimes animals beach themselves intentionally, it looks like this kiddo just got lost or swept in by a strong tide.

Thankfully, Dreyer was quick to act and probably saved his life…we’re pretty happy about it!
