Tom and Misha's Return to the Wild Nears …
OH SO CLOSE: Rescued Dolphins in Turkey Doing Great
Tom and Misha, the two bottlenose dolphins who were dramatically rescued from the brink of death in September 2010, when they were being kept in a fetid swimming pool at a resort in Turkey, are now entering their final but crucial stages of rehabilitation. Their muscle mass has slowly increased during their time in an offshore sea pen, and they have progressed from being hand-fed dead fish to being able to track down and consume live fish on their own. The dolphins are on schedule for release into the Aegean Sea - and back to the wild - in late spring. Find the latest news about Tom and Misha, complete with vivid photographs, in Born Free USA's Global Field Projects web section.

WATCH: Born Free's Roberts Appears on Heralded Video
Last year our executive vice president, Adam Roberts, participated in an educational forum about tigers at the Massachusetts School of Law in Andover. Tigers, as you probably know, face dire threats to their continued existence in the wild and otherwise are exploited in vile ways. The forum was filmed and transformed into a documentary, "The Plight of Tigers in the U.S." Earlier this month, the documentary received a coveted Bronze Telly Award. The Tellys, which have been presented for 33 years, recognize films, videos and online video content at the local, regional and cable TV levels. Check out the 60-minute show, which we present in four 15-minute installments on our YouTube site.
