People help two dolphins - level 1

People help two dolphins - level 1

31-03-2015 15:00

Here some news from Western Australia. It is about two dolphins. They are chasing fish. They swim up a river. They swim into a lake.

The lake is not deep enough for the dolphins. They cannot get back to the sea. Some people help them.

They lift the dolphins up. Ten people must do this. One dolphin is 300 kilograms heavy. People move the dolphins into deeper waters.

The dolphins are OK. They are only tired. People are happy when the dolphins get to deep waters.

Difficult words: chase (to try to catch), deep (big), lift (to move).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Don't you love it that dolphins always look like they are smiling? :-)
