Dolphins save humans from drowning because they understand drowning

September 20, 2011 · 2 comments

I have just learned some amazing facts about dolphins. For example, they identify humans as somewhat similar to them by scanning our skeletons through sonar. Knowing we are similar, they often help drowning shipwreck victims and save their lives by pushing them out to the surface. They also protect humans from sharks.

Did you know that in Japan and Denmark, dolphins are killed in large numbers for food?

Just to clarify, dolphins are very rare in Danish waters. I think you may be referring to the annual whaling event in the Faroe Islands. The Faroe Islands do belong to Denmark technically, but have their own government and do not consider themselves danes – and we in Denmark have no power over their traditions.

To see what’s happening in Japan, you should see this movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1313104/
