    the dolphin had experienced being removed from a tuna net, or observed other dolphins being removed/set free.

    It would be kinda tough to test directly, but it would be especially cool if the dolphin did not have any first hand experience with humans, but rather, was informed by other dolphins that humans could be trusted.

    I'm sure that there have been studies that attempted to test inter-dolphin verbal communication to reveal their ability to understand and convey complex concepts. (it's just a matter of searching for them, I'll have to put that on my 'idle time' todo list).

    ...if you could brighten the day of someone who is lonely or afraid on my behalf that would be something I would love. -Station Wagon.
