Meeting Dolphins: My Adventures in the Sea by Kathleen Dudzinski
Who can resist dolphins? They're so smart, and they have that mysterious smile. But they're wild animals -- possibly friendly, potentially dangerous. And only a very few people get a chance to meet them in the wild. Kathleen Dudzinski is one of them. Dudzinski has studied dolphins all over the world. Everywhere she goes, she observes gestures, sounds, and behaviors to try to figure out how dolphins communicate. She has watched mother dolphins teach their babies how to hunt and swum with a pod of dolphins to figure out how they all know to turn at the same time. She's even built an underwater camera housing with microphones to record and study dolphin sounds in stereo. In "Meeting Dolphins," Dr. Kathleen Dudzinski, marine biologist and subject of the large-format film "Dolphins," tells her own story and the story of the dolphins she has come to know and love.
