A pod of dolphins off the coast of Queensland has been bringing ashore gifts from the sea — apparently because they miss human interaction.
The dolphins usually mingle with visitors at Barnacles Cafe & Dolphin Feeding, but it’s been weeks since visitors lined up to feed the animals due to coronavirus restrictions.
So, the dolphins are searching for gifts in the sea and bringing them to shore in hopes of getting a response.
“The pod has been bringing us regular gifts, showing us how much they’re missing the public interaction and attention,” the cafe wrote on Facebook.
Among the treasures the marine creatures have provided are sea sponges, barnacle-encrusted bottles and pieces of coral.
