At the mouth of the Suriname River a colony of dolphins may be found. But many Surinamese don’t know these beautiful, intelligent creatures exist. This film shows how sightseeing tours are bringing people into touch with the creatures, and how a research programme is ensuring there will be dolphins for future generations to enjoy.
