Another Icy Post
These dolphins came in to feed in Seal Cove, a bay not too far from where my home is in Newfoundland. Advancing ice has trapped them. Many great minds have been brought to bear on finding a solution to save them.
I find it so, so heart wrenching. Their panicked cries at night haunt the inhabitants of the area.
Dolphins are one of the closest mammals to our species and have a language all their own and are extraordinarily playful. They frolicked with our boat this past summer. At times they appeared to be laughing. They were far too quick for my camera as evidenced by the picture above!
Apparently an icebreaker could do more harm than good.
All are praying that the ice melts before it is too late.
