I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. (Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info: harzen@nulltaras.org or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.
