At our beautiful field site on Bimini, The Bahamas, the Dolphin Communication Project studies a group of wild Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) that frequent the clear blue waters of the island. Using special underwater video and audio equipment, we have been able to identify and catalog many of the individuals comprising this group, learning much about group structure and dolphin social behavior. By adopting one of the Bimini dolphins, you will be helping to fund our non-profit research group's research, education, and conservation efforts that will directly benefit the Bimini dolphins. Hardcopy adoption kits (available to supporters in the US) cost just $35 for a full year and electronic adoption kits cost just $30 – either way, that's less than $3 a month! The perfect gift!
