Whangarei, New Zealand.<br><br><br><br>
A pod of dolphins is being praised for providing a protective barrier around a group of swimmers who were being threatened by a great white shark off the north-eastern coast of New Zealand.<br><br><br><br>
Rob Howes and three other lifeguards were on a training swim about 100 yards off shore at Ocean Beach near here when the dolphins raced in and herded the group together.<br><br><br><br>
"They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing tight circles around us", Howe said.<br><br><br><br>
He said he spotted a 10-foot-long shark cruising toward the swimmers. They were surrounded by the dolphins for 40 minutes before they were able to make it back to shore.<br><br><br><br>
Nice one flipper!<br><br><br><br><br><br>

Dolphins are so awesome.<br><br>
IMO Cetaceans should be the first animals granted worldwide rights as a sentient beings, and should be respected as such.

I agree, how could we get this done? I mean look how we treat each other, do you think the dolphins are going to make it? or us for that matter.
