Dolphins welcomed the referendum

Today we had this year’s first encounter with a group of dolphins we know well and which we otherwise usually see regularly. As we had not seen them at all this year so far, we have been wondering where they are and have even been growing a bit worried. But today, after yesterday’s referendum, where the people of Slovenia successfully rejected a harmful water law, they re-appeared. As scientists, we attribute this to coincidence and biological factors. And yet, we cannot help wonder if they somehow knew that yesterday we also managed to partially protect their home.
