Doctoral Student's Dreams Include Opening Dolphin Museum

ausrasaltenyte-1 March 22nd, the daily newspaper "Respublika's" weekend supplement, "Laisvalaikis" (Leisure) featured the dolphin collection of MRU Environmental Policy Dept. staffer Aušra Šaltenytė. Šaltenytė's (see photo) dolphin collection is so huge that the 29-year-old MRU doctoral student plans to open a museum to house the more than 850 different statues, plates, mugs and other memorabilia devoted solely to dolphins. Now her collection includes souvenirs from 27 countries. One day she hopes to be able to swim side by side with the dolphins.
