Dolphins have permeated the Greek culture since ancient times. Countless artwork and several myths celebrate their strong and intimate bond with humans. For centuries, dolphins have been at the core of the Hellenic civilization and they are vividly portrayed in iconography throughout Greece. In recent times, however, dolphins have almost fallen into oblivion—their remnant iconic role being confined to tourist jewellery and postcards. While today's abundance of dolphins is likely only a fragment of what it was a century ago, important populations still live and reproduce in the Greek seas.
