Product Description

To Touch a Wild Dolphin is the first intimate account of dolphin life in the wild. In 1982 Rachel Smolker travelled to Western Australia's Monkey Mia, at the time little known, where wild dolphins regularly interact with humans. Over the next 15 years, Smolker and a team of fellow scientists were able to explore the lives of dolphins as they had never been explored befor: up close, and in their natural environment.
Smolker came to know the relationships, histories, and 'personalities' of the dolphins, from playful and incredibly silly to moody and unpredictable. In a book full of wonderful encounters, built on an impressive scientific understanding, she takes us closer then ever before to these beautiful and endlessly fascinating creatures.
