Have a Kleenex handy. This is beautiful stuff.


Bringing a new life into the world is a special moment that isn't always shared. But last week, about 50 people gathered around the lagoon of Dolphin Quest Hawaii to witness something that is rarely seen: a baby dolphin being born. It's doubtful those witnesses had as good a view as you're going to get as you watch this incredible underwater video of Keo's first offspring taking its first swim:


Incredible beautiful!


"The trust shared between Keo and her human crew members throughout the birth of this beautiful baby was extraordinary," said Dr. Rae Stone, marine mammal veterinarian and one of two Dolphin Quest founders who were present at the birth. "Keo clearly sought out and took comfort and reassurance from her human friends. And she willingly swam up to the dock to allow veterinarians to check the baby's heart rate with ultrasound during labor."

That may be true - but take a look a mom's rather aggressive behavior when the baby got too close to the person filming! Good Mom!

Added note: Remember this next time you eat tuna. Always make sure your tuna is Dolphin Safe!

I fast forwarded to that part.



Being a father, and witnessing my children's births, I never once thought, a moms role diminished, to just birthing. Its actually awe inspiring to know, how instincts "kick in", and how universal they are, actually.

Just awesome.


Thank you for sharing this.

This thread is just not complete without the following!

Dolphin Safe Tuna Consumers


Earth Island Institute monitors tuna companies around the world to ensure the tuna is caught by methods that do not harm dolphins and protect the marine ecosystem. Our standards prevent harm to dolphins and are adhered to by more than 90% of the world’s tuna companies.

They list these conditions for qualifying as 'Dolphin Safe':



1 - No intentional chasing, netting or encirclement of dolphins during an entire tuna fishing trip;
2 - No use of drift gill nets to catch tuna; German Whale & Dolphin Foundation, GRD logo
3 - No accidental killing or serious injury to any dolphins during net sets;
4 - No mixing of dolphin-safe and dolphin-deadly tuna in individual boat wells (for accidental kill of dolphins), or in processing or storage facilities; and
5 - Each trip in the Eastern Tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) by vessels 400 gross tons and above must have an independent observer on board attesting to the compliance with points (1) through (4) above.

Yeah, as long as she was between her baby and the person all was well - but let baby get close without her and woohoo! She just squirreled (eeled?) her way right in there in a flash! I loved it!

Here's a still from the video.
