Welcome to the Dolphins in Paradise Blog

Dolphins in Paradise has become for me a preferred state of mind.
This blog is about co-creating an on-line space where people can share,
and perhaps remember, our connections to our cetacean allies
and the feeling of upliftment and sense of community which is the result of that.

Humpback Thanks Rescuer

A female humpback "thanks" a diver after a group of environmentalists worked for hours to free a whale tangled in a web of crab pots and hundreds of yards of line off the Farallon Islands outside San Francisco.

The caption of the photo which was e-mailed to me reads:
"May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you."

Porpoises in the Bay

Harbor porpoises have recently been sighted back in San Francisco Bay. For the last 65 years these shy and elusive marine mammals have rarely been found inside Golden Gate Bridge. Marine biologists are wondering what ecological changes are occurring that would account for their increase in numbers.

They have been seen from atop a bluff at Cavallo Point and have also been sighted in Racoon Strait between Tiburon and Angel Island.
