Dani the Dolphin

Hi everyone, my name is Dani and I’m a bottlenose dolphin. I spend my life cruising up and down the Australian coast looking for food and playing in pods. You may have seen me or my friends jumping out of the water at the beach.

Since my diet mostly consists of fish, I like to hang around entrances of harbours and rivers (this is where all the fish like to hang out). When I am swimming in these waterways I have started to notice a lot of plastic rubbish! Plastic packets, bottles and bags are starting to fill our oceans, making it very hard for us to tell what is actually fish! And unfortunately sometimes we end up eating the plastic. This can make us very sick! 

I try my best to avoid it but sometimes it's just too hard since there's so much! So, no matter where you are please always put your rubbish in the bin. It will be a big help!
