Spotted Dolphins around Bimini

DCP's Dolphin Research at Bimini & Xenia Brobeil

Xenia Brobeil has begun working with DCP on her project studying the group dynamics of Atlantic spotted dolphins found on the Great Bahamas Bank, north of the island of Bimini. Xenia will be using photos and video to identify individuals and activity of these dolphins. Xenia's observations will provide baseline data for comparisons to data previously gathered by D.C.P. personnel studying the same species in the northern Bahamas. Xenia will be sending weekly updates on her progress to Kathleen who will in turn share these reports with you online. Xenia arrived to the Bahamas late last week and was greeted by 5 foot waves and winds blowing at 25-30 knots! Add rain to the mix and you will have a good idea of the weather in her area currently. Let's hope the weather in Bimini improves so Xenia can get out there to observe the dolphins. Cheers Kathleen
