  • Description

    Dolphins at Surfers' Paradise aquarium, Australia, are providing plasma for medical research as well as entertainment for visitors.

    Researchers at Austin Hospital, Melbourne, a thousand miles away, are looking into all aspects of human blood clotting and they asked for a supply of dolphin plasma from Marineland.

    The hospital's blood unit has found that dolphin plasma has anti-clotting properties that could lead to a breakthrough in the field, When supplies are needed the dolphin pool is emptied at Surfers' Paradise, blood is drawn form them and flown to Melbourne for the research work.
