CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

Wild dolphin “asks” for help to get untangled from fishing line and a fishing hook stuck in its skin. Openly trusts divers as they cut off the line.

I know, I know. At first, I didn’t believe the title or description either. And even as the video unfolds, I remained skeptical. But then it happened - the dolphin clearly ‘asks’ for help. I’ve never seen anything like it (well, maybe except in domesticated pets). Definitely gives pause to reflect on the meaning of sentience.

From the description:

This video of a dolphin in need is really something on so many levels.

It turns out that the dolphin had fishing line and a hook stuck on one of its fins, so it approached a group of divers who were watching manta rays at night near Kona, Hawaii. Fortunately one of the professional divers was able to help remove some of the fishing line that was restricting the movement of the dolphin, though in the end they were unable to remove the hook.
