I came across The Dolphin Foundation while watching a Raw Video: Save The Dolphin From The Slaughter on AOL. Go to the dolphin link, take a look, and make a donation today. Thank you all for your daily contributions.

I urge you to please take a look and look within your heart...these beautiful, loveable, "Flippers" may not be here 20 years from now if we don't do something to save them today. I once had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins at Miami Seaquarium. I know now they don't belong in a seaquarium, but it was an awesome experience I will never forget.

I too have swam with them three times to be exact in Burmuda the last time they did not do tricks we just got to be in the water with them but the would come up and put their heads on your lap wanting to be petted. The three we were with were all pregnant and ready to deliver any day they were artificially insiminated and they had a huge pool set a side incase of an emergency. They are so loveing and touching you can see the love in there eyes when they come up to you. They said they each get fed 30 pounds of fish a day and there is a vet on duty at all times it is truely an experience I too will never forget.

Barbcat, are you personally involved with this organization? I enjoyed going through their website and will happily make a donation. Dolphins are such lovely creatures. I honestly believe that someday we will be able to decipher their language (or they will be able to decipher ours, which is more likely!) and we'll discover they are at least as intelligent as humans.

I also think, that IF we don't do something now, your 20 years will be shorten, and all We willhave for Any Animal is a photo of them.

Noted, I am sad that Japan is so ugly minded as to the intelligence of these beautiful creatures, that they put them in the category of meat animals. Herding whole families into catch pens, killing indiscriminately. Shameful people!

First, I'd like to extend my heartfelt thank yous to everyone who either noted or noted and commented. We need to resolve the problem of dolpjin slaughter in Japan once and for all. The way to do this, I believe, is to just continue making people, inside and outside C2, AWARE of this DEVESTATION. Inform your local news paper, TV station, radio station, any means of media you can. This is an ABSOLUTE URGENT MATTER and will NOT JUST "GO AWAY"!!

Dolphins are the most intelligent mammals in the ocean is 1,000% correct. I believe they are so much MORE INTELLIGENT THAN US!! If memory serves me correctly, I believe they used to walk on land in the Messisoic era. I'm not sure what kind of dinosaur they were, but it took millions of years for them to develop into dolphins.

After all that time, to come so far, only to be caught in tuna nets and be slaughtered for meat in Japan, it's way past time that we FIGHT FOR OUR FLIPPERS...

Just a short word about me,my family and the Dolphins. In my family I was lucky enough to have twin girls who darn near lived in water! From the 8th grade on they were life guards at the pool in our Round Rock, Texas. The point that I'm making is this, because of them being life guards and top swimmers all over the state so when we went to the gulf in Corpus Christi they always swam with the Dolphins over and over. My wife and I were so proud of them! They both love the Dolphins and always will!

Even though dolphins are very friendly animals, they have many enemies. Some of these enemies are tiger sharks, dusky sharks, bull sharks, and sometimes even orcas. When a dolphin can see that an animal is trying to prey upon it, the dolphin floats calmly, pretending itís dead. This makes the shark think that some other animal already killed it. The dolphin will be ignored because sharks only like to eat fresh meat.amazing wel-come a Board ! my pleasure. i love the site all the pretty Fish swimming by.
