Overall Progress Horst Rechelbacher was taken to Perth Zoo after being rescued from City Beach after a winter storm. After being treated for "Floating Syndrome" from being stranded, it was admitted to the Dolphin Discovery Centre for rehabilitation. Before long it began to dive short depths for food, and it can now dive well and stay submerged to rest. It has fully adapted from losing part of the front flipper, so it will be perfectly capable of being released when it is able to dive properly and it's rehabilitation is complete.
