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.

Baby Dolphin Being Born

"The trust shared between Keo and her human crew members throughout the birth of this beautiful baby was extraordinary," said Dr. Rae Stone, marine mammal veterinarian and one of two Dolphin Quest founders who were present at the birth. "Keo clearly sought out and took comfort and reassurance from her human friends. And she willingly swam up to the dock to allow veterinarians to check the baby's heart rate with ultrasound during labor."

Rare, White Orca Sighting

A rare, white orca was spotted near Bering Island off the coast of Russia in April, 2012, by the Far East Russia Orca Project. This is the first sighting of a pure white mature male. With a two-meter high dorsal fin, the orca is believed to be at least 16 years old. He's been nicknamed "Iceberg." (photo by E.Lazareva/AFP/Getty Images)
