The Very Intelligent Dolphin-age 3+
While you may know some basic facts about the Dolphin, there is plenty more to learn. To put it simply, the Dolphin is one of the most fascinating creatures in our planet’s waters.
One of the cutest, smartest, and most playful ocean creatures is the Dolphin. The Dolphin is a marine creature that is truly unforgettable. The average Dolphin is about 5.5 feet long, and weighs about 110 pounds. Having said this, some of the largest Dolphins on our planet, like the Maui’s Dolphin, is about 31 feet long. (Wow, that is a big Dolphin). The Killer Whale, which is technically a Dolphin, weighs about 10 tons. (So interesting, I did not know that!) Besides length and Weight, Dolphins have torpedo shaped bodies that help propel them thru the ocean.
One of the most special things about the Dolphin is it’s well-developed hearing. This hearing is adapted for both air and water. In fact, a Dolphins hearing is so excellent, that some Dolphins can survive even if they are blind. Download your very own booklet and read more about our friends the Dolphins! They are truly amazing! To breathe, Dolphins exhale stale air from their blowhole, and inhale fresh air into their lungs.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Can you imagine the ocean without dolphins? Neither can we. Here are some things you can do to help make the dolphins’ world safer and healthier:
Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Rethink – Respond; bring your reusable grocery totes.If you must buy disposables,buy paper products rather than plastic or Styrofoam. The manufacture of Styrofoam depletes the ozone layer. Conserve water. Use fewer harmful chemicals and pollutants, and dispose of them properly. Try to use phosphate-free laundry and dish soaps. Save your kitchen scraps for the compost pile. Boycott tuna or buy only “dolphin-safe.” Volunteer your time to conservation projects. Participate in stream and beach cleaning programs. Become more involved in marine environmental issues. Vote for candidates that share your sentiments.Write your legislators when you have an opinion about pending legislation on environmental, land use and other issues. Plant native, insect resistant. trees and shrubs in your backyard to provide food and shelter for birds and other creatures. Pull weeds Instead of using herbicides. Learn about natural insect controls as alternatives to pesticides. Use public transit. Ride your bike or walk instead. Drive a more gas efficient car.
