Summary of chapter: 20

Cara tells Daisy all about the dolphin and she is curious to see her. Aunt Bev drops them to school. Since the rescue team needs volunteers to look after the dolphins so Felix and Kara decide to offer their services. When the bell rings at her school, Kara rushes to Daisy’s class and almost pulls her down the road. She can’t wait to see the dolphin. There are lots of people at the Blue Pool. The policewoman stops her from going near the pool. She calls Carl and inquires about the present condition of the dolphin. He informs that she is a little better but she can’t swim due to the damaged muscle. The vet has restricted the general public to go near the dolphin as she could pass some diseases onto people. Carl informs Kara that the calf cannot survive in the sea without her mother but unfortunately she has been scared away. Felix and her dad are struggling to find her. Kara dejectedly runs back. She desperately wants the mother dolphin to return to her calf.
