In the s, Margaret Lovatt was part of a Nasa-funded project to communicate with dolphins. Christopher Riley reports on an experiment that went tragically wrong. L ike most children, Margaret Howe Lovatt grew up with stories of talking animals. In her early 20s, living on the Caribbean island of St Thomas, they took on a new ificance. During Christmasher brother-in-law mentioned a secret laboratory at the eastern end of the island where they were working with dolphins.

She decided to pay the lab a visit early the following year. Lovatt was met by a tall man with tousled hair, wearing an open shirt and smoking a cigarette. His name was Gregory Batesona great intellectual of the 20th century and the director of the lab. Despite her lack of scientific training, Lovatt turned out to be an intuitive observer of animal behaviour and Bateson told her she could come back whenever she wanted. Sissy was the biggest.

Pushy, loud, she sort of ran the show. Pamela was very shy and fearful. Dolphin sex stories Peter was a young guy. He was sexually coming of age and a bit naughty. It was cleaned by the tide through openings at each end.

The facility had been deed to bring humans and dolphins into closer proximity and was the brainchild of an American neuroscientist, Dr John Lilly. Here, Lilly hoped to commune with the creatures, nurturing their ability to make human-like sounds through their blow holes. Lilly had been interested in connecting with cetaceans since coming face to face with a beached pilot whale on the coast near his home in Massachusetts in At every opportunity in the years that followed, John Lilly and his first wife, Mary, would charter sailboats and cruise the Caribbean, looking for other big-brained marine mammals to observe.

It was on just such a trip in the late s that the Lillys came across Marine Studios in Miami — the first place to keep the bottlenose dolphin in captivity. Now aged 97, Mary still remembers the day very clearly. I went down to where they were operating and told them that this was going on and they were quite startled. If so, here were exciting new opportunities for interspecies communication. Lilly published his theory in a book in called Man and Dolphin. But even at a state-of-the-art facility like the Dolphin House, barriers remained.

It just seemed so simple. Why let the water get in the way? I want to live here. She began completely waterproofing the upper floors of the lab, so that she could actually flood the indoor rooms and an outdoor balcony with a couple of feet of water. This would allow a dolphin to live comfortably in the building with her for three months. Lovatt selected the young male dolphin called Peter for her live-in experiment.

Lovatt would attempt to live in isolation with him six days a week, sleeping on a makeshift bed on the Dolphin sex stories platform in the middle of the room and doing her paperwork on a desk suspended from the ceiling and hanging over the water. On the seventh day Peter would return to the sea pool downstairs to spend time with the two female Dolphin sex stories at the lab — Pamela and Sissy. Lying in bed, surrounded by water that first night and listening to the pumps gurgling away, she remembers questioning what she was doing.

What I was doing there was trying to find out what Peter was doing there and what we could do together. That was the whole point and nobody had done that. It was just being together which taught her the most about what made Peter tick.

If I was sitting here and my legs were in the water, he would come up and look at the back of my knee for a long time. He wanted to know how that thing worked and I was so charmed by it. Carl Sagan, one of the young astronomers at Green Bank, paid a visit to report back on progress to Frank Drake. That was really the prime experiment to be done, but Lilly never seemed able to do it. Instead, he encouraged Lovatt to press on with teaching Peter English. But there was something getting in the way of the lessons. But transporting Peter downstairs proved so disruptive to the lessons that, faced with his frequent arousals, it just seemed easier for Lovatt to relieve his urges herself manually.

It would just become part of what was going on, like an itch — just get rid of it, scratch it and move on. People could observe it. For Lovatt it was a precious thing, which was always carried out with great respect. Sensuous perhaps. It seemed to me that it made the bond closer. Not because of the sexual activity, but because of the lack of having to keep breaking.

I was there to get to know Peter. That was part of Peter. And I Dolphin sex stories to one and looked and I found this story with my name and Peter, and a drawing. Lovatt bought up all the copies she could find, but the story was out there and continues to circulate to this day on the web. But that was not the point of it, nor the result of it. So I just ignore it. Something else began to interrupt the study. Lilly had been researching the mind-altering powers of the drug LSD since the early s. The wife of Ivan Tors, the producer of the dolphin movie Flipperhad first introduced him to it at a party in Hollywood.

In the s a small selection of neuroscientists like John Lilly were d to research LSD by the American government, convinced that the drug had medicinal qualities that could be used to treat mental-health patients. As part of this research, the drug was sometimes injected into animals and Lilly had been using it on his dolphins sincecurious about the effect it would have on them. Playing with pharmaceuticals is a tricky business to say the least.

Injecting the dolphins with LSD was not something Lovatt was in favour of and she insisted that the drug was not given to Peter, which Lilly agreed to. But it was his lab, and they were his animals, she recalls. And as a young woman in her 20s she felt powerless to stop him giving LSD to the other two dolphins. Without funding, the fate of the dolphins was in question. But not a dolphin. It was a far cry from the relative freedom and comfortable surroundings of Dolphin House.

At the Miami lab, held captive in smaller tanks with little or no Dolphin sex stories, Peter quickly deteriorated, and after a few weeks Lovatt received news. He said Peter had committed suicide. If life becomes too unbearable, the dolphins just take a breath and they sink to the bottom.

And that was OK. In the decades which followed, John Lilly continued to study dolphin-human communications, exploring other ways of trying to talk to them — some of it bizarrely mystical, employing telepathy, and some of it more scientific, using musical tones. No one else ever tried to teach dolphins to speak English again. Together they moved back into Dolphin House, eventually converting it into a family home where they brought up three daughters.

In the years that followed the house has Dolphin sex stories into disrepair, but the ambition of what went on there is still remembered. And in turn the idea of my living with a dolphin inspired others. I like that. Environment Climate crisis Wildlife Energy Pollution. The Observer Dolphins.
