In Laguna, Brazil, dolphins herd fish toward fishermen on the beach and then signal them when to toss their nets. The dolphins then get to feast on the fish that are not caught. This is an untrained behavior and has been going on since the mid 1800's.

In a story that can be adapted for another Flipper sequel or reboot, rescuers are trying to save a dolphin that's stranded in wetlands along the California coast.
