NATURE | The Dolphin Defender | Rescue in Nicaragua | PBS

Duration: 04:26


After the Nicaraguan government finds out that two dolphins have been captured for a "swim-with" program at a resort hotel, rescuers are dispatched to track them down. Hardy Jones, featured in "The Dolphin Defender," brings his camera. The rescue team finds that the captors have abandoned the dolphins in a cesspool of their own excrement. Racing against the clock, they rush the dolphins back to the waters where they were captured, hoping they will be able to reconnect with their pod.

Join Hardy Jones in his crusade to protect dolphins in NATURE's "The Dolphin Defender" airing on PBS Sunday, August 10 at 8 p.m. (check local listings).

"The Dolphin Defender" is part of the 26th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen/WNET New York for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc., Toyota, SC Johnson, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. For more information, visit www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episod...
