Dolphins are extraordinary creatures. Who would not be thrilled to rub noses with them in the water, grab on to their dorsal fins and go for a fast ride, to watch them leap high overhead, and even to pet their snouts gently? Visitors do this daily at the Dolphin Research Center in Grassy Key, Florida. They also see how dolphins are fed, cared for, and trained to perform in shows.
Marcia Seligson accompanied by photographer George Ancona have captured the unusual activities of the center, and more significantly, the remarkable nature of the dolphin.
