Here's the story: Back in November 2006, an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin became stranded off a beach in Florida. Named Castaway (pictured), she was discovered to be pregnant.

Once rehabilitated, she was released, but became stranded again. She was sent to another facility where it was discovered that she was deaf -- which is probably why she originally became stranded.

Now, caretakers are setting up speakers and microphones in Castaway's tank that are connected to another dolphin tank not far away. Why?

article explains it. Isn't it wonderful when humans help other animals in need?

More about the rescue will be found

Castaway's current status will be found
