I had to share a post by David Kanigan on Lead.Learn.Live. Perhaps it’s my upbringing in Micronesia in the South Pacific, but this giant pod of dolphins brought tears to my eyes — so utterly beautiful and inspiring. As the witness says at the end of the video: “Once you’ve lived that experience, it obviously leaves a trace in your mind… you’re marked forever. And from that moment, you just want to protect that natural beauty.”
Sailors capture spectacular footage of rare dolphin super pod encounter
“They were aboard Horn’s 110-foot sailboat off Cape Town, South Africa, when perhaps as many as 10,000 common dolphins appeared around their boat, swimming in what’s sometimes referred to as stampede behavior. “At first, on the horizon, we noticed what appeared to be a giant ball of bait fish…The water boiled for literally a mile in every direction … only as it approached at the speed of a swift wave did we see first a nose, then another, then a dorsal fin and then a thousand of them, then more…Only then did we realize we were experiencing the rare ‘super pod’ of dolphins. Not dozens, not hundreds, but thousands of them — so thick you could have walked across their backs had they been game for it.”
