July 19, 2017 (RADIO KIRIBATI) ---- More than 100 dolphins landed on the lagoon shores of Kabuna village on the island of Tabiteuea North in the Southern Gilberts after the construction of the village’s maneaba ‘Bibitoinikarawa’ was complete.

Resident of the village Tabukinikai Tabwanou told Radio Kiribati News the incident occurred between 10am and 12pm on Tuesday.

Tabukinikai says the incident is not something new to the village because it has been happening over the past years.

He says whenever a new ‘maneaba’ for the village is constructed or renovated, scores of dolphins will be seen swimming towards the shore and just stayed there...RK News
