DCP's Dolphin Research Trainee program got the attention from local newspaper, The Day. A video showcasing DRT participants' experiences at our Bimini, Bahamas field site will be premiered on 9 October from 11:30 - 1:30 p.m. at Mystic Cinema in Old Mistick Village. The event is free and open to the public.
A playful, young dolphin from our Bimini, Bahamas field site has received her name! ID#084 is now known as "Addie." Addie is a juvenile female who was first added to our photo-ID catalog in 2006. She is the independent offspring of Trudy (#57) and received her name from DCP supporter Sandra Roberts. Now that Addie's name is official, you can support DCP's research and education programs by adopting her today! Want something a little more flattering? How about a nice comfy t-shirt with her image front and center? Click to adopt Addie or click to shop Addie Gear.
