Adam Roberts ‘The Compassionate Conservationist’, CEO of Born Free USA & Born Free Foundation talks with Big Blend Radio hosts Nancy J. Reid & Lisa D. Smith, about how Born Free successfully rescued, rehabilitated and released two bottlenose dolphins back into the wild. The dolphins, Tom and Misha, were originally captured from the wild off the coast of Turkey, and were used to perform and provide ‘swim-with’ opportunities for tourists in captive facilities. Tom and Misha were rescued from their tiny concrete tank where they had been languishing in filthy water and going downhill fast. Over a period of 20 months of rehabilitation, they were transformed into the sleek, efficient marine mammals that nature intended.
