Today, April 14th, is National Dolphin Day. Having gained steam in the 1990s and continuing into the present day, this holiday focuses on the worldwide plight of the dolphins.
Gatherings and awareness meetings take place in major cities across the globe. Some of largest venues include San Francisco, New York City and Tokyo. Traditionally, Dolphin Day places a particular emphasis on curtailing Japanese dolphin hunts, as these have received much publicity during the last decade. Each year, this worldwide event continues to gain a growing number of supporters. Hopefully, the near future will see a complete ban of dolphin hunting and while this holiday may no longer be needed, it will indeed be a happy ending for both the dolphins and their human advocates!
Now, let’s all take a trip down under, via YouTube, and watch this awe-inspiring POV video of swimming with dolphins in Kaikoura, New Zealand.
Thank-you YouTube Channel Mael Corvaisier for this dynamite dolphin video!
