10 Search for Human Interest

My search led me to the NOAA Fisheries Protect Dolphin Campaign. I wanted to balance the image of vacationers having a great time, with an image of what can go wrong for both dolphins and humans. I thought it would help to visualize what might happen when wild dolphins get too close to humans.

Here's my visualization:

I see a boat at sea, surrounded by dolphins. Two teenagers are swimming with them, having a great time. One dolphin swims so close that he is injured by the propeller blade. It's impossible to know what will happen to the dolphin. Will he survive? The next thing I see is the Florida Coast Guard. They give the boat captain a ticket for allowing swimming with wild dolphins.
