I have had several incidents with dolphins where they have protected me from sharks. They formed a very tight circle around and under me.
In a different incident four dolphins came over to me; two took up positions just under me. The other two, one on each side pressing against me. The other dolphins in the group chased the shark away.
These dolphins risked their lives to protect me from sharks. While out surfing I’ve seen a dolphin with its dorsal fin bitten off and other dolphins being chased by great white sharks.
Protecting this ‘great white cash cow’ has resulted in an out-of-balance ecosystem. Now while out surfing I don’t see very many dolphins.
What’s being done to protect dolphins from great white sharks?
