People help two dolphins - level 2

People help two dolphins - level 2

31-03-2015 15:00

Two dolphins were probably chasing fish and swam up a river to a lake in Western Australia. People wanted to help the dolphins get back to the sea.

They herded the dolphins. One man even threw himself on the animal to try to catch it. In the end, they placed the dolphins on sheets and transported them into deeper waters. One of the dolphins weighed over 300 kilograms – 10 people lifted it up.

The male dolphins were healthy but tired after swimming in the lake waters. Some people noticed the rescue operation and cheered when the dolphins returned safely to water.

Difficult words: chase (to try to catch), herd (to make move), sheet (a large piece of fabric).

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? :-)
