We see this happen way too often with dolphins and whales. This time it happened in Arraial do Cabo, Brazil (back in March 2012), but it had a happier ending because a group of tourists and beach-goers sprang into action to save this trapped pod of frightened dolphins who clearly didn’t see the danger until it was too late. We’ve seen a lot of sad episodes where there was no one to rescue these gorgeous creatures, but thankfully here’s one that shows that mankind really can have a big heart.
This remarkable rescue was taken by Gerd Traue, who told the story to CNN. Honestly, this is what the circle of life is really about. But to respect this circle, we need to understand how we fit into it amongst all of the other living creatures on this living planet. We are all in a symbiotic relationship. So, if you want to know more, then go visit your local aquarium, zoologist, or any other scientist who can teach you about the delicacy of life on Earth. I recently visited the Birch Aquarium in La Jolla, CA, and it reminded me of the responsibility that we all have to learn how to co-exist with our fellow companions on this blue marble we all call home.
- thanks Dad for pointing me to this story with a happy ending <3
