Just watched this video. A dolphin in distress approached a group of divers up close and presented himself clearly as in need of help. What's more, the diver gestured to the dolphin to "come here" and it imediately did so. This video is a testament to just how fragile earth is but also how an act of kindness to the earth can go a long way. Something tells me this particular dolphin, indeed these divers also, will never forget this moment.

Many thanks to Keller Laros, your actions make you a God amongst men. Although it didn't take much effort as witnessed from the 8 minute ordeal, it could have been just as easy to turn a blind eye.

I watched this vid this morning and was mesmerised by what happened with the diver and the dolphin. Really amazing by both.

Indeed, awesome display of human compassion and an amazing display of another mammal that for all intents and purposes should fear man, took the plunge (no pun intended) and sought out the assistance of the divers. Perhaps the dolphin could sense it was a safe situation...somehow.

I wish they would have been able to get the hook though, nonetheless and as was stated, right place right time.

I found myself lurching trying to help the guy remove it

Wow. I've had wild dolphins come up and check me out at night, get just a few feet away and sonar scan me. But I've never had one let me touch it. Manatees, yes. Even a barracuda once. But never a dolphin.

I've had momma dolphins bring baby up to see what a human "looks" like. At least that's what I interpret as what was going on. But I think the closest one's let me get was maybe a foot and a half out of reach.

This one was obviously checking out the people and decided on letting them assist. That it could reason out that a diver could and would help it is astounding. The entire "this is a problem I can't fix" -> "maybe it's a problem a HUMAN could fix for me" -> "I think I'll find some humans and let them have at it" is just an amazing sequence to go through for a wild animal.

Worded perfectly!

I think the reasoning behind it was in the link here:

www.rawstory.com...

Is a news video that discusses these divers that have gone to this site thousands of times for this particular sting ray gathering. The rays munch on some glowing bacteria


So it's possible the dolphin is aware of it's surroundings and has watched them for however long. Reasoning that thus far no damage has been done to these creatures so they seem harmless enough. Now going from that thought to them having a clear understanding that we are even capable of assisting is pretty cool. And furthermore, the diver is also indicating that he made a specific gesture and he personally felt the dolphin reacted to that gesture.

I cannot imagine the existence of this planet without dolphins and whales being a critical component to the resonance of this world. I think their purpose is vastly misunderstood. I have always believed that their existence holds a key to uplifting this earth for the survival of mankind and the planet. Their identity and value are unlike anything and they are truly one of the most intelligent mysteries. They are a beautiful creation!

Thank you so much, that was beautiful. S&F

I sit here and all I want to do is reach out and give that diver a great big THANKYOU!

THANK YOU MR DIVER MAN

Just awsome, thanks for sharing OP.

Maybe its time that people stoped eating them.

Maybe it needs to be made into a 30 second commercial and focused on the initial contact. At the end it just states: "Maybe it's time that people stopped eating them"

At what point does it take until an animal can be considered more than just an "animal"?

For many people nothing will change them, short of the threat of being eaten themselves.

I once watched a docu...think it was called Earthling. I've never eaten meat since. People who think animals are no more than meat ought to sit and watch it. If your already compasionate about animals I'd recomend giving it a miss, its absolutely horrific.

Someone posted a vid a few weeks back of an Elephant looking in a mirror, that too should be enough for people to realise they are more than just an animal, I'll post it if I can find it.

Once again, thanks for posting the OP.

Im familiar. Even familiar with all the elephants that traveled days to visit the "elephant whisperer" after he passed away.

An here is an elephant from India who paints. It is amazing!! Different colors with flowers, etc.

I apparently don't know how to get these vids in here but here's another try.

youtu.be...



This is the simple version. He does more complex paintings also.
