  'I've swum with dolphins'
Updated 27 February 2002, 09.19
Dolphins
Claire's dream is to work with dolphins.

"I love dolphins, my life ambition was to swim with them which I have done.

Sea World in Florida
They are so lovely - the most delicate mammals I have ever seen.

I went to Sea World in Florida and went to Discovery Cove. I thought it would feel cruel to see animals in captivity.

Sensational feeling

But they were so happy, it was so emotional to see them enjoying life.

It was the most sensational feeling to touch a dolphin, it was so hard to explain what it felt like, then I heard a boy say it felt like a boiled egg.

It breaks my heart to see some people hurt such beautiful mammals and be able to live with what they have done to them.

So when I think of my future I want to work in Sea World or in any aquarium with dolphins or other animals in need."

Claire, 13, Great Yarmouth
