Between species : celebrating the dolphin-human bond( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since ancient times the kinship between dolphins and humans has been celebrated across cultures and continents in myth, art, literature, and science. Only recently, however, have we gone beyond our own view of this interspecies connection and begun to ask: What might this bond look like from the dolphins' perspective? This anthology brings together for the first time eminent scientists and gifted writers to help shed light on this intriguing question. Selections range from tales of transforming dolphin encounters to views on how to protect cetaceans and their habitats, and from poems honoring dolphins to provocative critiques of swim-with-the-dolphins programs and acoustic pollution.--From publisher description
