Rainbow and her new baby

One of WDCS’s adoption dolphins, Rainbow, has a brand new baby!

Adopt a Dolphin Field Officer, Charlie Phillips, managed to get this beautiful photo of the pair of them and posted it yesterday on his blog.

Bottlenose dolphins are one of the best known and most loved of all dolphin species. Rainbow and her baby are part of a small group of these dolphins that live in the Moray Firth, Scotland.

To find out more about adopting Rainbow or one of her friends, visit our adoption pages.
