“Sometimes what I do can be very emotional, but if I don’t do it, then it will just continue,” said Dorian Hermann. Hermann, 60,  is a rescuer and always has been — of people, of animals and of dolphins. She’s recently returned from Taiji, Japan, where she is a Cove Guardian for Sea Shepherd, a conservation society with a focus on marine animals. Hermann is also part of the El Dorado County Search and Rescue team — a member of the technical rope rescue team as well as the ground search team.
