«Dolphins should be treated as non-human "persons", with their rights to life and liberty respected, scientists meeting in Canada have been told… based on years of research that has shown dolphins and whales have a human-like level of self-awareness… although non-human, dolphins and whales are "people" in a philosophical sense» - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-17116882

«A number of captive dolphins were rewarded with fish in return for tidying up their tank. One of them ripped up a large paper bag, hid away the pieces, and presented them one at a time to get multiple rewards.» ‎· 9000
Where necessary, a sort of treaty has been already achieved: «In Iceland, killer whales and fishermen have been known to work together. The whales show the fishermen where to lay their nets, and in return are allowed to feed on part of the catch. Then they lead the fleet to the next fishing ground.» ‎· 9000
