Spinner Dolphins Protected

As I mentioned on Sunday’s report, we didn’t have a scheduled Dolphin Watch Adventure on Tuesday (but we will on Thursday, 5/11), so with no statistics to report, I’ll just send on my Dolphin Fact of the Day!
Though Spinner Dolphins are not considered endangered species, they are protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, which means it’s illegal to “harass” them. Harassment is generally defined as doing anything that would alter the dolphins’ behaviors.
