Wild Dolphin Birth Caught on Camera

In what dolphin experts say is an Australian first and possibly only the second episode in the world, the birth of a baby dolphin in the wild has been caught on camera in Mandurah, Western Australia. This rare event, which took place on April 11, 2018, was spotted by Mandurah Cruises’ staff, giving crew members and 30 lucky guests a rare and unexpected experience. Nearby volunteers from the Mandurah Dolphin Rescue Group then attended the scene and were able to capture exclusive vision and photos of the 1.5-hour labour, the birth, the newborn’s first breath and post-birth interaction between the mother and her calf.

Media coverage of the occurrence was as follows:
