If we do end up being able to directly communicate with dolphins I could see them one day being labeled as intelligent genus with humans being the only other one. They could be given their own rights just like you and I have.

Exactly five minutes later a group of them appeared in front of us and were jumping and playing! My husband just kept saying, "that is so wierd, that is so weird..."
Probably just a coincidence, but I wonder if we could learn to communicate without any tools at all.edit on 18-5-2011 by coquine because: (no reason given)
In recent times, dolphins have begun to be seen as more than just an aquatic mammal. They have receieved the status of 'sentient beings' and have recently been described in this article as 'non-human persons'.
