Dolphins caught spitting to catch fish

Rare footage of dolphins spitting has been captured by the BBC during four years of filming beneath the world’s oceans for the new ground-breaking series, Blue Planet II.

Cameramen caught Snub Fin dolphins on camera, for what could be the first time, off the coast of Western Australia spitting into the air to trick fish into leaping from the water in order to then eat them.

The new series, which promises to be a treat for those who love marine wildlife, is set to broadcast in October.

 

However, the programme also highlights how much the oceans have become filled with plastic. Presenter, Sir David Attenborough said; “You see plastic wherever you go. We know that it has had a serious effect on fish populations and bird populations.

Look out for WDC’s new plastic pollution initiative, #NotWhaleFood which is launching in October.
