Whale of a Time with Dolphin Moko - the Hero Saves Stranded Whales

Never has this been recorded before in history. Dolphin Moko who is a very popular dolphin since the 10th March 2008 when he came to rescue a whale mother and her baby who had been stranding at Mahia Beach in Hawke's Bay.

The two pygmy sperm whales got very distressed although conservation field worker Malcolm Smith who has been working in this field for 30 years and couldn't help the whales and was about to give up and kill the whales to save them from any more pain. All of a sudden a dolphin turned up out of the blue and swam directly towards the whales and started talking whale. The whales agreed with the dolphin and swam back into the sea.

This was an exceptionel resolution of the problem and shows how this compassionate creatures of the sea care for each other and are able to communicate over distance and help each other. Perhaps we'll see humans work with these animals more closely for whale rescue around the world. Dolphin Moko certainly has received our Whale of a Time Award for his fascinating rescue work.
