Dolphins can be found all over the world and in different
environments. Bottlenose dolphins are one of the few species,
along with apes and humans, that have the ability to recognise
themselves in a mirror. This is considered ´reflective´ of their
Underwater noise pollution from naval activity, the oil and gas
industry, seismic surveys and underwater construction can
stress and injure cetaceans and is a real threat to dolphins.
It also severely interferes with their ability to communicate,
reproduce, navitage and find prey - sometimes proving fatal.
But fishing gear is a major threat to dolphins. They are often
killed accidentally in gillnets, driftnets, purse seines, trawls,
long-lines and on hook-and-line gear used in fisheries.
