Bali Dolphins Lovina
Welcome to the Dolphin Pool at the Melka Excelsior Hotel in Lovina, Bali. The home of our 5 dolphins Gombloh, Dewa, John, Rocky and Rambo
Our dolphins at Melka are very special. Four have been rescued from a circus where they were severely mistreated, and one was injured in a fishing net. Here they have recovered their health. Now they work with humans for play and healing. If you come to the dolphin pool you are entering their home. In the ocean, dolphins travel great distances and have complete freedom to move quickly wherever they wish to go. They can choose whether or not to interact with humans. So here we must respect their space.
Did you know that researchers believe that:
- Dolphins have their own language with up to a trillion words
- Dolphin brains are larger than human brains and have 40% more thinking ability
- Dolphins have abilities to heal humans that we do not yet fully understand.
- Dolphins once walked on land
- Dolphins use sonar to locate items and communicate
- Dolphins are intelligent creatures who have capabilities equal to or exceeding humans
