Could talking to animals guide us to talking to extraterrestrials? Discovery News reports:

For 27 years, marine biologist Denise Herzing and colleagues have been regular visitors in the Atlantic Ocean home of a 200-member pod of spotted dolphins living north of the Bahama Islands.

Understanding the relationships between the members of the pod is key to unraveling what their dozens of whistles, clicks and other signals mean.

“The large goal of this project is to tell the story of what it’s like to be a dolphin,” Herzing, a researcher with Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and the founder and head of the Wild Dolphin Project, told Discovery News.

    Why would an ET want to talk to our disgusting species unless they wanted something.

    Thas a stupid headline. We already know how to talk to aliens. Lincos was invented in the 60s. Otherwise we could just use pure math.

    And it’s not like dolphins are sapient, this may help us speak to ET’s dog tho.
