“We call him Flipper, Flipper, Flipper (but I don’t remember why). There is no doubt if you spend much time at sea or around the shoreline you will have had an encounter with a dolphin. They are intelligent creatures, very friendly, and train people well on how to feed them. Naturally, Flipper was a television show about a dolphin who was like a Rescue 9-1-1 pet of the sea. And dolphins have been known to rescue people from time to time.
How to celebrate – Watch old reruns of Flipper. Support Sea World for their efforts to save sea life. Learn how to be friends with an animal instead of owning them.
