A pod of dolphins is being praised for providing a protective barrier
around a group of swimmers who were being threatened by a great white shark
off the north-eastern coast of New Zealand.
Rob Howes and three other lifeguards were on a training swim about 100
yards off shore at Ocean Beach near here when the dolphins raced in and
herded the group together.
“They started to herd us up, they pushed all four of us together by doing
tight circles around us”, Howe said.
He said he spotted a 10-foot-long shark cruising toward the swimmers. They
were surrounded by the dolphins for 40 minutes before they were able to
make it back to shore.
Nice one flipper!

creatures also, and remember they are endangered.
