Rescued by Dolphins

Our friends the dolphins are once again in the news. An article at National Geographic Newswatch tells how dolphins guided scientists to rescue a suicidal young woman.

"There are many anecdotal accounts of dolphins saving humans from death and disaster, either by guiding them to shore, fending off sharks or helping them to remain afloat until help arrives."

Read the full story in this article by Maddalena Bearzi. Then, skip down to the bottom and read the account from P. Preston Warren in the comments.

King and Queen

In a story from the New York Daily News, Dante and Chiara de Blasio (son and daughter of NY Mayor Bill de Blasio) have been selected to headline the annual Mermaid Parade as King Neptune and Queen Mermaid.

"The parade features an eccentric lineup of marching bands, drill teams, floats and antique cars and attracts more than 1,000 participants donning extravagant sea creature costumes."

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade takes place this year on Saturday, June 21st at 1pm. Visit their web site!

Ripley's Aquarium

The mermaids have returned to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the summer. Mermaid shows take place three times daily, and the shows are scheduled through August 9th.

For all the splashy details, check out this article at Hispanic Business.

Mermaid School

We have talked about the Philippines Mermaid Swimming Academy a few times in the past. Recently, another article about the school showed up at Investor Spot of all places.

The article by Laurie Kay Olson looks at the school from a business perspective. A good read, even if you have read other articles on the school in the past.

Maya the Mermaid

Let me introduce you now to Maya, a cute mermaid craft project by Abby Glassenberg.

"Maya is a super sweet doll. She's nice and big at 20" (50.8 cm) and very huggable."

Abby's blog article at While She Naps includes a link to the pattern and instructions which are available for $9 USD.

Best wishes and starfishes,
