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 and Canada) 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!

Top five reasons to adopt a dolphin from DCP

 

Adopting a wild dolphin with DCP helps to fund:

Want to visit your adopted dolphin?

Why not join DCP on one of our Bimini ecotours where you'll get a chance to meet your adopted dolphin face-to-face in the wild!

When was your adopted dolphin last seen?

DCP research associates spot the dolphins from our Adopt-A-Wild-Dolphin lineup regularly during our annual summer research field seasons. Check out DCP's Field Reports or follow DCP on Twitter to learn when your adopted dolphin was last spotted. (spotted, get it?) Wondering what happened to those dolphins "retired" from our Adopt-A-Dolphin lineup, like Cleo, Nemo, Finn, White Blotch, Vincent, Tilly, Trudy, Tootie and JoAnne? Click here to find out.

Order a 5-pack of Dolphin Trading Cards

These professional quality trading cards feature images and facts about each of the wild dolphins available for adoption through our Adopt-A-Wild-Dolphin program, as well as DCP researchers and 'fun fact' cards. More info here

 Wear your dolphin!

DCP's adopt-a-dolphins are now featured on a cool new range of t-shirts! Our t-shirts come in various styles, and each one features an image of the dolphin, as well as a brief bio describing their age, gender, personality and where they live. You can purchase these t-shirts directly from our CafePress stores by following the links below - you will find more t-shirt styles available for each of the dolphins at each of the storefronts. If you've already adopted one of our dolphins, or are thinking about doing so, why not buy a t-shirt together with your adoption kit? Like the adoption kit, all proceeds from these sale of our adopt-a-dolphin t-shirts will go directly toward the research and education efforts of DCP.
