Wrapping Up 2016 and Ringing In 2017!!

Happy New Year’s Eve!
DCP/Kathleen is finishing out 2016 in and welcoming 2017 in research style … with a week of data collection and a college field course on Roatan at Anthony’s Key Resort! And, thanks to John, the MVA2 has new hydrophone arms that allow for the MVA2 to be in carry-on luggage (small black bag on left)! The arms are back to the original design and made of PVC – the green my added touch! I’ll be sure to post a photo of the MVA2 all assembled in a day or two so you can see the full effect of the new arms.
Today is travel day! I’m writing this post as I sit in the airport waiting for my flight to Roatan. I’ll be joined by students from Colorado State University (CSU) and the University of Southern Mississippi (USM) for a week of data collection and study into dolphin behavior and physiology. We’ll be merging the disciplines of animal behavior and exercise physiology. Dr. Shane Kanatous, Biology at CSU, is joining me and we’ll be co-teaching this week’s program. Stay tuned to our blog for daily updates from the field!
