A Dolphin group in Xcaret, Mexico

Today is feel good Sunday, so in Honor of this day of positive thinking, here is a feel good story.
Do you need or want, yet another reason to fight for and defend wild animals?
Is it just me, or do Dolphins always look happy and like they are smiling?
I give you this story, in the hopes that you too will become a wildlife or any animal defender from this point on~
Recently in the waters off of New Zealand, near Cook Strait, British swimmer Adam Walker, was saved from the jaws, (truly sorry for that) of a Great White Shark.
Walker was about to become lunch while swimming for Whale and Dolphin Conservation, in support of the very animals that saved him.
This was his seventh swim for the group to raise money and awareness for Whales and Dolphins around the world.
The pod of about ten “Guardian Dolphins” surrounded Adam and protected him from the Great White who was closing in on him.
Apparently, the shark then decided that perhaps there were more rescuers than he could handle and left.
Can you say KARMA?
Point in fact, this is not the first time that this kind of protective attention was given by Dolphins towards a Human.
By now, we are all keenly aware that Dolphins are one of the most intelligent animals in the Sea, isn’t it time for us to protect those that have repeatedly proven they are willing to protect us?
We must defend the Dolphins now in their time of greatest need, as they are being hunted and murdered at alarming and sickening rates all over the planet.
So be a good Human and defend Dolphins, won’t you?
You never know when they might return the favor to you~

I’ve also heard that dolphins get high on puffer fish, which only makes me like them all the more 🙂 They are kindred spirits to us.

Thank you for the great story, Gator Woman. 🙂
So very glad you liked it Jet~
What a beautiful story!! It shows how animals are so brave and loving! We have no excuse not to protect and love them, too!!
They have shown Humans nothing but love, since we crawled out of the seas to join them on this planet.
It is our responsibility to protect them, mostly from our all too often careless, callous behaviour towards them.

Gator Woman, Re: “From Where I Sit.”
I have not kept that blog active for some time. I now (mostly) only follow “The Fifth Column.” I can be contacted at TedWebb1@aol.com.
Do you have a WordPress Blog?
Did have one, but “From Where I Sit” has beeen inactive for about 18 months. (Long story including illness.)
Perhaps one day you may revive it~
It has such very good content and we need another
fellow Floridian on WP.
I did not put those tighter, until I just got into my email. I really liked that Blog.
Cannot spell in a hurry.
You, too? I suspect it isn’t a common malady..
My fingers cannot keep up with my brain sometimes~
We live in Paisley, just so you know we are near by!
Pensacola is quite a ‘fur piece’ from Paisley…
Thank you for being a voice for the voiceless. ❤
Thank you for all that you do~
We share several common bonds.
I lived in Simi Valley for more than 20 years.
I did a wonderful 15 year stint in LA, Orange and SD Counties.
I miss living there, there were no bugs~
beautiful blog – and necessary. I cannot give money donations, as i am myself on a pension. I do hope people will support you in every way possible.. eve
