Dolphin Adoption

Bottlenose Dolphin Distribution The Bottlenose Dolphin live in small groups of about ten individuals. The groups move to warm tropical warters in winter and head back toward the poles in summer. The dolphins are often seen leaping out of the water as members of a school play with one another.

Bottlenose dolphins feed on a wide variety of fish, squid, shrimp and small rays and sharks. They sometimes feed alone, but sometimes they work together in a group to catch fish. For example, a group may sometimes chase schools of fish onto mud banks, or they whack fish with their tails to stun them, and sometimes a group circles around a school of fish while one dolphin at a time dives in to feed.

Like other dolphins, Bottlenose Dolphins use echolocation to locate their prey in the dark depths. They produce clicking noises that bounce off objects in the water. The dolphins can hear each other's clicks and echoes, and groups may work together to track down shoals of fish or squid. In areas where there is plenty of food, dolphin schools congregate so that thousands of the leaping mammals may be seen together.

By adopting a dolphin, you will help ensure this endangered species is looked after and stop its decrease in numbers in the wild. Humans are making huge changes to the Earth. Forests are being felled, wetlands drained and the oceans polluted. As habitats disappear, so do the species that live in them. Air pollution caused by the burning of fossil fuels - coal, oil and gas - in the home, by power stations and transport, contributes not only to climate change, but also to health problems such as asthma. The pressures on our planet have become so great that an urgent rethink about how we behave is now necessary if we are to have a world that we and our children will want to live in.
