For 28 years, Denise Herzing has spent five months each summer living with a pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins, following three generations of family relationships and behaviors. It's clear they are communicating with one another -- but is it language? Could humans use it too? She shares a fascinating new experiment to test this idea.
The cheerleaders of the Miami Dolphins covered Carly Rae Jepsens Call Me Maybe earlier this year and their video has been seen over 15 million times in the last 5 months. Recently U.S. troops stationed in Afghanistan had a little extra time to recreate their own version, matching the cheerleaders move for move.

Is the link between dolphins and humans as profound as some may believe, or is it just a natural mamallian instinct to protect others like it? The extraordinary benefits of dolphin hearing are explained here in this amazing wildlife film from BBC Worldwide.
A group of people in Brazil help save a pod of beached dolphins.

In an extraordinary twist on age-old hunting tactics, this group of bottlenose dolphins has honed its ability to make a kill... by taking its hunt to the shore. It's a high-risk maneuver that threatens to strand them with each attempt.

***it was originally edited to Groove Armada's 'Just For Tonight' and it was flagged by youtube (and I have 2 strikes against me) so I had to replace the music with youtube's least crappiest choice.
*Changed the music yet again on August 16, 2011*

A cat makes nice with a pod of dolphins.
Celebrity chef Ina Garten is better known as 'The Barefoot Contessa.' She has many fans who enjoy her personality as well as her recipes. 6-year-old Enzo is a young fan of Garten's. Enzo suffers from leukemia. When the Make-A-Wish foundation asked what he would like, Enzo said his wish is to meet the Barefoot Contessa.
However, when the foundation approached Garten, they were told she did not have time to meet Enzo. Enzo said he'll wait for her, so the foundation asked again later. But again, Garten said 'no'.Someone leaked the story to gossip site TMZ. Soon it was all over the internet. Many were appalled by Garten's refusal to grant Enzo's wish.
The bad publicity could affect not just Garten's ratings, but the sale of her books and line of food products as well. Hounded by the media firestorm, Garten quickly agreed to see Enzo after all. But he has decided to change his wish to swimming with dolphins instead.
What is the true call of the wild? Here we travel down a very special river and are introduced to a wide variety of the animal kingdom who all contribute their name for the sake of music.
