A 30-year study led by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society with the universities of St Andrews and Exeter found dolphins in Adelaide learned tail-walking from a fellow creature called Billie, who spent time in a dolphinarium after being rescued from a polluted creek in January 1988. Billie learned tail-walking by observing the performing dolphins and, when released, began performing the trick regularly in the wild.
