“In tanks of concrete, glass and steel, I wonder how the dolphins feel. A story of rescue, where kids save the day, working together, they don’t back away.”

Daphina, a captured bottlenose dolphin, is a favorite entertainer at an aquarium. She appears to be happy, but years of confinement and boredom are taking a toll on her health. What will become of Daphina?

Themes of capture and exploitation, human-animal interaction and marine life management, make this book a thought-provoking glimpse into the lives of confined intelligent animals.
