Can you feel the love for whales and dolphins tonight?
It’s common knowledge that dolphins and whales live in pods. Did you know that young male bottlenose dolphins often form friendships that last for years? The friendship of adoption dolphins Charlie and Indigo makes our hearts swell! Together they enjoy zooming around Chanonry Point, up the coast from our Scottish Dolphin Centre, catching mackerel and playing ‘chase’.
