From September 6–30, swim with "Dolphins" once again! Imagine you are a marine biologist working in the crystalline, turquoise waters of the Bahamas. Sunlight dances off the rippled, white sand banks. Swimming alongside you are some of the most graceful and extraordinary creatures on earth—wild dolphins. While few of us will ever have the chance to encounter a dolphin in the wild, you'll feel like you're in the water with these magnificent animals when you see "Dolphins."

From the dazzling coral reefs of the Bahamas to the wind-swept seas of Patagonia, "Dolphins" takes you on an underwater adventure with inquisitive Atlantic spotted dolphins, acrobatic dusky dolphins and the familiar bottlenose dolphin. While most of what we know about dolphins comes from studying them in captivity, Dr. Kathleen Dudzinski, Dr. Bernd Würsig and Dr. Alejandro Acevedo-Gutierrez conduct their research with dolphins in the wild, a far more strenuous, time-consuming, even dangerous endeavor. Employing innovative scientific methods and technology, they set out to learn more about how dolphins communicate and their foraging and social behaviors.

Featuring a soundtrack with music from Grammy Award®-winning singer and songwriter Sting, "Dolphins" will capture the imagination of audiences worldwide who will gain newfound respect for the ocean and the importance of scientific research to its preservation. Dolphins is produced by MacGillivray Freeman Films in association with the National Wildlife Federation, the nation's largest member-supported conservation group, with major funding provided by the National Science Foundation and Museum Film Network
