According to ‘Wikipedia’ there are 40 extant species named as dolphins. Dolphins are known to be extraordinarily intelligent animals who also display culture, something which was long-believed to be unique to humans (although now recognised in various species). Dolphins are altruistic they have been known to stay and help injured individuals, even helping them to the surface to breath. The Bottlenose dolphins are the most common and well known type of dolphin and can weigh up to 650 kg.

Mollymook dolphins are very most popular, with their beautiful streamlined bodies, friendly ‘smiley’ faces and intelligent behaviour. They are a relatively common sight along the entire NSW coastline. This species’ dark grey back and light grey belly colouring acts as camouflage and helps protect them from attacks by their natural enemies – killer whales and sharks. They can often be seen in bays and estuaries opening to the sea, and also ‘surfing’ in waves as they are forming and breaking.
