Dolphins Akeakamai & Phoenix at Waikiki Aquarium, Hawaii

Dolphins Akeakamai & Phoenix temporarily at the Waikiki Aquarium, Honolulu, Hawaii 1987. Both had been taught sign language. Penn Clarke & Kitty helped with the ongoing study of their intellectual abilities for one month.

Dolphins Hiapo & Elele at Sea Life Park, Hawaii

Dolphins Hiapo & Elele temporarily in private tanks away from public view at Sea Life Park, Oahu, Hawaii 1987. Hiapo & Elele had recently been captured from the same group of dolphins as Akeakamai & Phoenix who had been captured 8 years earlier off the coast of Mississippi. The four will be united in new tanks at Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Lab where the capture from the same group is important in case that group has their own dialect or language. Penn Clarke & Kitty helped socialize them by swimming as they feed them and by filming them for one month.

The following day, September 11, 2001, one of our nation’s greatest tragedies unfolded before our eyes. We captured much of it in these videos.
