    If he had gotten too fatigued to swim, those dolphins would have let him hitch a ride. Amazing animals, and probably the most pro-human creatures we’ll ever find in the wild.

    I absolutely love dolphins. They have NO place living in captivity for human entertainment. I stand firmly behind the Humane Society of the United States in opposing keeping marine mammals in captivity for human entertainment.
