just wait until they start gathering all the trash we put in the water and throwing it up on the beach for us to clean... then maybe it will get people attention.
...When the war ended, the military bases closed and the flow of goods and materials ceased. In an attempt to attract further deliveries of goods, followers of the cults engaged in ritualistic practices such as building crude imitation landing strips, aircraft and radio equipment, and mimicking the behavior that they had observed of the military personnel operating them.

I would think it odd for dolphins to worship us given the vast numbers of them we hunt or fishermen destroy every year.

Dolphins are so intelligent and beautiful, I had the privilege of patting and feeding pink dolphins in Singapore, and they were lovely.
They probably feel they are returning the favor to us

Probably some kind of tit-for-tat kind of thing. Maybe beached dolphins were saved there, or perhaps sick dolphins got treated for an infection, or they just get food and/or a good back scratching from the people that visit there. It is a gift giving gesture, but they wouldn't do it without some percieved benefit.
I remember hearing anecdotal stories about how if dolphins are treated well, they may even drive fish into a fisherman's nets. But if you look at it from a dolphin's perspective, hearding a school of fish is mush easier than catching them. So if a fisherman readily rewards you with more fish from his net than you could catch otherwise, as a dolphin, why would you not help him out?

It's just there way of saying 'So long and thanks for all the fish'.lol.
First thing I thought of was a cat bringing dead mice back for it's owners and they did say it felt similar.
