Dolphin adoption

Bottlenose dolphins in the Strait of Gibraltar are looking for a sponsor. We introduce them here.

Lolly

Lolly

We saw Lolly the first time together with her baby. She has a fungal infection on her dorsal fin, which makes it really easy to identify her.

Baby Leila and mother Melissa

Baby Leila und Mutter Melissa

Baby Leila was born in July 2012. Her mother Melissa is caring and devoted to agile little Leila. 

Cutty

Cutty

We know Cutty since 2000 and thus longer than all the other bottlenose dolphins who are up for  adoption. She got her name because of the special shape of her dorsal fin, which is slightly cut.

Salto

Salto

Salto got our attention with a phenomenal jump in 2011. Maybe he wanted to take a bird’s eye view of the firmm boat.

White Cap is a female Bottlenose Dolphin and we can recognize her easily, as her name indicates, on the white end of her dorsal fin.
