Dolphins' Derwent delight

A POD of frolicking dolphins in the heart of Hobart yesterday is a great indicator of the health of the River Derwent, experts say.
The pod of bottlenose dolphins, which included at least three young, was spotted in Kings Pier Marina about 10.30am.

Its surprise visit followed several reports in recent weeks that dolphins were becoming frequent visitors to the busy port.

The dolphins yesterday were photographed by officers of the Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment.

The manager of the part-government Derwent Estuary Program, Christine Coughanowr, said the appearance of the dolphins was very promising.
