Adopt Pa'ani the "playful" dolphin

Field Report - Hawaii

Category Header_Eco-Adventures Hawaii

On Friday, 01/24/2014 at 1:56 pm we had a resighting of Pa’ani, one of the dolphins in our Adopt a Dolphin program. She was part of a pod of seven bottlenose dolphins encountered by our Research Team.

Two of the dolphins were females with their young. Pa’ani had a juvenile dolphin tucked in next to her who was also seen with her last year.

“Pa’ani” means playful in Hawaiian. This dolphin is easily recognized by the distinct shape of the trailing edge of her dorsal fin.

With a donation of $25 or more, you can adopt Pa’ani, and in the process, you will be helping to support research, education and conservation programs to protect all dolphins and whales in the Pacific Ocean.
