Two dolphins who were rescued from a filthy pool at a Turkish tourism resort were released back into the wild this week after years in captivity.
So far, the male dolphins have exceeded their trainers'
expectations: Within 48 hours, satellite transmitters showed that Tom and Misha
had traveled more than 100
miles, and they were observed hunting fish as a team and
interacting with other wild dolphins.
"It's unbelievable to see them travel this hard and
fast," said Jeff Foster, a Seattle-based sea mammal expert who oversaw the
dolphins' rehabilitation and preparation for release into the wild.
