The iPad app tells powerful stories through interactive media of dolphin rescues and efforts to keep them living safely in the wild. The app, Wild Dolphins was created by a large team of committed, talented, professional people from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute working with the team at Polymash.
