Legend has it that humans and dolphins have long possessed some unspoken kinship. And now, we may be very close to actually being able to communicate with them.
Scientists are unveiling new findings at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in Hong Kong that could help them develop a special speaker that can take the cries and shrieks of dolphins and translate them into our human languages.
During a leisurely boating trip late last week near Fort George Island in Florida, Kerry Ware and her family spotted a dolphin stranded on a sandbar. Fortunately, Ware and her father were able to save the beached animal by dragging it with great effort to deeper water.
