Many people visit the Florida Keys to swim with dolphins, watch the sunset and have a great time with friends. But there's more to this beautiful place than just that. For example, many need to be made aware of how important dolphin protection is for people and animals in a region called the Dry Tortugas.

To help make sure that we keep these marine mammals safe from harassment or hunting, we're going to take an eco-tour of this little-known national marine sanctuary from aboard "Laid Back Dolphin Tours." There is no better way to experience the beauty of these waters and appreciate their importance than from up close! Join us on an unforgettable trip out into the open ocean.

How Dolphins Help Us (ListingID: 771977)

Just like humans, dolphins rely on other dolphins and outside sources (such as food, exercise and playtime) to get their nutrition and energy. They also require human interaction to be safe throughout the day. For example, they enjoy swimming with friends and family to strengthen bonds, have a great time in the water and learn new things daily! Additionally, they need a safe space away from boats when doing an important job, such as watching for illegal poachers or looking for ways to avoid being hunted. But how are these animals able to help humans?

Dolphins can communicate with humans via a very sophisticated language called Cetacean. If they come across an injured sailor or need help finding something in the ocean, they can easily use hand gestures and whistles to tell a human what they want. In addition, their strong affinity for other creatures is so strong that they can even tell when one of the sea turtles is sick! They'll work together to keep fish safe from illegal poaching and even scare away pirates if the situation gets too dangerous.
