Dolphins are extraordinary animals who display culture, something which was long-believed to be unique to humans. Dolphins have several highly developed forms of communication. They have a “signature whistle” which allows other individuals to recognise them. 

​Dolphins are altruistic animals. They are known to stay and help injured individuals, even helping them to the surface to breath. Their compassion extends to other species.There are many accounts of wild dolphins helping humans and even whales.
