Charming though Margaret Howe was, if she'd stayed in college and learned about Skinner and other people who worked on true communication methods, she might not have been responsible for the abuse that the dolphin "Pete" suffered. Vile though John Lilly's attempts at injecting LSD and subjecting the dolphins to noise pollution were, what killed the dolphin was the fact that he had been deprived of company of his own kind and forced into an unsuitable bond with a human who, although no fault of her own, then abandoned him.
At the same time as this was happening, Karen Pryor was working with dolphins in Hawaii and has developed ways of observation and garnering an understanding of animals on their own terms that has led to her communicating with crabs and squid - and of course - dogs.
There is a short interview with Karen here:
Her book, Reaching the Animal Mind explains much about her early work with dolphins in the 1960s and much else. Cannot reccomend it highly enough.
