THE DOLPHINS OF SHARK BAY

The turquoise crystal clear waters of the remote Australian Western coast is the habitat of an extraordinary group of bottle-nose dolphins. Some of them are using sponges from the deeper channels of the sea for foraging - a unique hunting technique and the first documented practice of marine mammals using tools. The film accompanies a team of scientists and a dolphin calf in its first days of life.
