We have learned a great deal about the intelligence of whales and dolphins:   -they appear to understand how things work, and how to manipulate objects -they recognise other members of their species, and recognise individual behaviour -they recognise themselves, and parts of their own bodies, in a mirror – an ability we thought was limited to apes, elephants and humans -they have good auditory, visual and spatial memory -they learn easily, often without explicit instructions, but through gestures and body language -they can imitate sounds and behaviours – one of the highest forms of social learning
