One of my favorite events of the year is our field course with Sacred Heart University (SHU). Taught by Dr. Deirdre Yeater and held at our Bimini, The Bahamas field site, this course brings SHU and non-SHU students to study wild Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins. Mornings are filled with class lectures and discussions and afternoons are spent at sea, searching for and observing dolphins. It’s exciting for me; most students have never seen a wild dolphin, certainly not under water. And watching students go from sitting and listening to scientists talk about dolphins to being the ones collecting data – real data that DCP will use – is so rewarding. The application period for this field class closes 15 December so get your application in! Learn more at this link and this link.
