Two special moments from Australia and South Africa capture how full of life our oceans are, with rays, dolphins, and whales.
Scientists have come up with an ingenious solution to the ethical problem of keeping dolphins in captivity.
Many of the feel-good animal posts doing the rounds on social media, including the one about dolphins in Venice, have been debunked.
Denmark is known as one of the happiest countries in the world. This does nothing to explain why they hold a festival every year to kill hundreds of dolphins and whales.
Cape Town’s in the midst of some sunny weather – for now – and a big pod of dolphins were spotted out in Camps Bay soaking up the good times.
After stranding themselves (and getting refloated) off Bloubergstrand, a pod of false killer whales made quite a splash at the V&A Waterfront yesterday.
We know that dolphins are pretty damn intelligent, but much like us they also like to kick back and enjoy the swell from time to time.
One fearless canine decided to forego the safety of the boat, making friends with a pod of dolphins off the coast of the Bahamas.
The Japanese town of Taiji became synonymous with brutal dolphin slaying after the Oscar-winning, tear-jerking, doccie, ‘The Cove,’ was released. Sadly, regardless of the international recognition and fame the documentary received, dolphin hunting at the cove still takes place annually between September and April, and its about to get a whole lot darker.
The ride is similar to those you rode as a kid outside the Pick ‘n’ Pay – you know, the space-ship or car that used to move about as your mom patiently waited. Banksy’s version is a little different, it delivers a message. The ride is not a space-ship or a car, it’s a dolphin struggling to swim through fishing nets and BP oil, installed as a reminder to those who have forgotten about BP’s role in poisoning the Gulf Coast of the USA.
Frankly, we’re not surprised. Holidays at the Black Sea are awesome. Typically, the most dangerous thing you’ll find are Russian mobsters, and fat guys dancing in speedos. But you can avoid all that by staying in the water, right? Wrong, my friend. You’ll die in the water. Because there are dolphins with weapons strapped to […]
Humans and animals don’t always get along. But on occasion one species helps the other out in a remarkable way. When it comes to dolphins, it’s often the animal coming to the rescue of the human, but in this dramatic video, it is beachgoers in Brazil who lend a hand to the dolphins. Heartwarming stuff.
A teen surfing in the wake of a yacht off the Gulf of Mexico was pleasantly surprised when two animal friends decided to join him. Watch this very cool video – featuring a pair of curious Bottlenose dolphins swimming and jumping beside the boy – after the jump.
Sometimes there just isn’t anything more important in life than to watch videos like this. Yes it is cute, but more importantly it is the realisation afterward that hits hardest. If a cat and a dolphin can connect on such an intense level why can’t a black and a white human? Or a Palestinian and an Israeli. Take your pick, but hopefully you get my point?
Second to us, scientists reckon that dolphins are the most intelligent animals on the planet. They can learn up to 100 human words but previous attempts to converse with them have been primarily one-way – our way. But we may soon be able to decipher the chirps of dolphins, then create and project an appropriate response, all in real time.
