Join Sacred Heart University (SHU) in Bimini, The Bahamas for a 12-night field course in cetacean ecology!
This course was a huge success last year and we look forward to another success in 2014. The course begins with an online component, with Professor Deirdre Yeater, on 19 May 2014. By 27 May all students will arrive in Bimini, for classroom time and fieldwork! With 8 boat trips in search of Bimini’s wild dolphins, students will experience many facets of wild dolphin research.
All participants must take this course for credit through SHU, however visiting students are encouraged to apply.

The Dolphin Gazette, 17.3

We're proud to announce the latest overflowing issue of our quarterly newsletter, The Dolphin Gazette. In this issue, Kathleen shares updates from her recent trip to Europe and we continue our push to achieve our FundAGeek goal. Justin is busy preparing for the second installment in his collaborative Apes and Dolphins Seminar Series. For those of you interested in our Bimini, Bahamas field site, we hope you enjoy updates not only from Kel, but also from our summer interns.

Words are not enough to to express our thanks to the team at Wildlife Acoustics! They have been very supportive of our research studying dolphin calls and noise levels. DCP was honored to beta test the very first SM2M recorder off Bimini (pictured here). This passive acoustic recorder is autonomous: we deployed it for two ~2-week stints off Bimini to record sounds continuously.

DCP is proud to announce the launch of our first ever attempt at crowdfunding!
