Die Botschaft der delfine

Peoples love dolphins and they sometimes seem to seek contact with us. What is behind this? What do you want to tell us? How can we interpret their behavior and understand them better? Eric Demay devoted his life to serving dolphins. When he finds himself face to face for the first time with a captive dolphin in a dolphinarium, it's over for him: he does everything he can to study these animals, whose communicative behavior does not correspond at all to the image of a sea creature
