Since ancient times humankind have been fascinated with dolphins, the playful and gentle air-breathing mammals of the seas. At last there is a tape that lets us hear the wide variety of sounds made by dolphins in their natural habitat. Dance of the Dolphin was digitally recorded in the Bahamas by members of the Wild Dolphin Project, a group involved in extensive research on dolphin communication and interspecies interaction. Two types of dolphins are featured here: the shallow-swimming Atlantic spotted dolphins and the common bottlenose dolphin. We are treated to a wide variety of clicks, trills and whistles as the dolphins feed, play, communicate across distances and use their sonar for echo-location.
