THE STATE SALTWATER MAMMAL:

DOLPHIN

-

Ever since Flipper popped up on TV 55 years ago, we have loved cheeky dolphins. But there is also controvers­y about man’s interactio­n with these highly-intelligen­t creatures. In the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge, off Marco Island, south-west Florida’s bottlenose dolphins are being studied by scientists. Join them on a Dolphin Study eco-cruise, which matches learning with fun. Hear about dolphin movement and behaviour. Meet and greet these playful individual­s, identified by names, such as Kona, Simon and Kaya (www.dolphin-study.com).
