But if blasted constantly by seismic testing for oil, it’s easy for babies and mothers to get separated.
Dolphins are among the most intelligent animals on Earth. A mother and baby will use calls to communicate, just like humans.
They also form tight bonds with each other, seeming to grieve for lost family members.
Those emotional bonds are too often ripped apart. Seismic testing for oil drilling can send noise blasts hundreds of miles, every 10 seconds for weeks, which harm dolphins and drown out their voices.
With one simple act – adopting a dolphin – you can play a big role in saving baby dolphins from that deafening noise.
Oceana’s comprehensive campaign to stop seismic testing in the Atlantic and implement stronger international bycatch rules is pushing us closer to a day when these gentle, smart creatures are safe.
