Ugh: humans are ruining dolphins’ mating rituals
Dolphins are probably the coolest ocean species that exists. They’re smart, they’re fast, and they even sometimes band together to kill sharks. If that’s not cool, I don’t know what is. But something unfortunate is happening to our dolphin friends. And what is this terrible, dismay-inspiring thing? They’re having less sex. But what’s even more disconcerting is that we—us lousy humans—are the spring from which this lack-of-sex is emerging. If we want to keep the world ripe with dolphins, then, we must understand this most unfortunate of happenings.
