We tend to think of news as the sort of thing mostly covered by the major television networks, forgetting that anything else new exists worthy of our attention. Of course, there are lots of fascinating subjects that never reach the nationwide networks, but are covered by local outlets. That material is just waiting to be organized into topical categories by enthusiastic people interested in a particular subject.
That sort of project can be seen in action over at a wonderful site called Tursiops (tursiops being a genus of dolphins). Tursiops brings together news of whales, especially dolphins, from all over the planet.
Dolphin rescues, pods of killer whales attacking larger whales, the experience of captive marine mammals, and evaluation of supposed dolphin exposure therapies are all subjects recently covered by the articles over at Tursiops.
If you’re curious about whales, I suggest you go take a look – it’s much more interesting than watching another hour of Nancy Grace on CNN Headline News.
