Scientists say dolphins should be treated as non-human persons

http://www.physorg.com/news181981904.html

(PhysOrg.com) — Scientists studying dolphin behavior have suggested they could be the most intelligent creatures on Earth after humans, saying the size of their brains in relation to body size is larger than that of our closest relatives, the chimpanzees, and their behaviors suggest complex intelligence. One scientist said they should therefore be treated as “non-human persons” and granted rights as individuals.

This is a rather interesting result, since for quite long Dolphins have been known to have extraordinary long-distance trans-individual communication. Maybe in the future humans are able to learn communication by studying dolphins?
