The distress call of a young dolphin has been used to lure a large pod of the animals to safety, after it appeared they would strand themselves in shallow water.

Environment officials in Western Australia caught the juvenile and took it to deeper water, where its distress calls enticed the rest to follow.

Shame the young dolphin had to go through a stressful situation. Glad it worked and saved them all though.

I hope they at least audio recorded it in case this situation ever arises again.

Yes, what a brilliant idea. :tu:

When I first read the thread before reading the article I presumed it was a recording.
