  12. Dolphin & Greek Myths • Since time immemorial, dolphins and humans have shared a special bond. They appear regularly in Greek mythology. Dionysus, a Greek god, was captured by pirates. When then ship set sail, he drove the pirates overboard, but then turned them into dolphins to always help others and never do wrong again.

  13. Nets • Spinner dolphins in the Pacific ocean are chased by fishing nets 5.6 times per year and caught 0.7 times.

  14. Kids Help Save Dolphins • The Kids Organization Against the Extinction of Dolphins (KOAED) in the United Kingdom works with kids from ages 11-18, fighting against the extinction of this very loved marine mammal. They have held community meetings and have made it illegal in that one part of the U.K. to even have a drift net. Wishing the United States was like that, children in different states have organized groups as well. www.agirlsworld.com
