WhyReef - Threats
Since spinner dolphins swim with tuna, they sometimes get caught and die in tuna fishing nets. But many humans have changed the way they fish, and use dolphin safe tuna nets.
Some people catch them to eat or to use as bait, but they are more valuable to people alive. Many people like to watch them swim and jump, especially tourists. Tourists pay to watch them swim, and local people can use the money to keep their home and dolphins safe. This is called Ecotourism.
