Viki Winterton interviews Roberta Goodman!

Roberta Goodman's career began in 1978 when she read Dr. John Lilly’s book, Communication Between Man and Dolphin.  In 1980, she found nine dolphin mentors and began a five-year relationship under their tutelage. As Research Director for the renowned Dr. Lilly, she initiated the release of the Human/Dolphin Foundation's dolphins, Joe and Rosie.

Since 1986, Roberta has spent time with dolphins only in the wild. Her communication studies continue during daily trips to pods in Hawaii.

With stories of both domesticated and wild dolphins, Roberta illustrates the reasoning behind considering Cetaceans as persons with culture, sentience and exceptional intelligence. Roberta co-founded Cetacean Nation with John Lilly in 1993, declaring the rights of whales and dolphins as a People. One day she says we will all understand the wisdom of the dolphins as we now understand the wisdom of indigenous peoples.

Roberta's vision is to create a center for rehabilitation of domesticated dolphins into their natural ocean environment. Tanks to Sea is her ongoing preadaptation and documentation project.
