Hi Robin,
You have included a lot of facts and statistics in your animal report. The dolphins do not grow very much from birth, do they?! Only about 60-90cm.
You have said in your report that both Hector's dolphin and the Maui dolphin are endangered. Did you know, they believe there are only about 55 Maui dolphin left alive, and that if we do nothing to change our ways and to save them, they will be gone in about 30 years time? What could you do to help them?
Love Mama
