On Friday, Kathleen was back on the Indian River State College campus, this time to attend the IRSC Semi-Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. Kathleen was supporting Ashley Locher, who participated in the Service Learning program between IRSC and DCP in May and June 2016, and continued through the summer and early fall to develop a presentation from her experience for the program at IRSC. Ashley’s poster presentation title was: Comparative studies on pectoral fin contact behaviors between wild and captive dolphin species. Ashley stood by her poster during the three-hour program and skillfully answered questions from members of the audience about the research and results. Ashley graduates this fall with her degree from ISRC. Congratulations to Ashley for a well-done presentation and for finishing her degree!
