Think of the last time you went to the Aquarium. You probably had a blast, looking at the fish and the sharks, and so many others. But did you get to see them? The dolphins? These poor marine mammals are endangered everywhere. Many of the species of dolphin are being killed, but not by the other marine creatures. by us. Various fishing methods, most notably purse seine fishing for tuna and the use of drift and gill nets, unintentionally kill many dolphins. Accidental by-catch in gill nets and incidental captures in antipredator nets that protect marine fish farms are common and pose a risk for mainly local dolphin populations.[40][41] In some parts of the world such as Taiji in Japan and the Faroe Islands, dolphins are traditionally considered as food, and killed in harpoon or drive hunts. Dolphin meat is high in mercury and may thus pose a health danger to humans when consumed! Pesticides, heavy metals, plastics, and other industrial and agricultural pollutants that do not disintegrate rapidly in the environment concentrate in predators including dolphin from their prey. Injuries or deaths due to collisions with boats, especially their propellers, are also common. Many of the dolphin species are dying out! Will you help protect them? Or just be another bystander that does nothing? Dolphins Pictures, Images and Photos D:
