DCP Deep Dive: Creative Dolphins – Killer Whales vs Dolphins


Have you heard about dolphins being creative? In this Deep Dive, learn details about how two species of dolphins (yes! Killer whales are dolphins!) performed on a test of creativity and how these findings might be related to understanding how dolphins learn new behaviors or adapt to different environments.

This talk was led by Dr Heather Hill who has studied the behavior and cognition of several species of marine mammals, including cetaceans and pinnipeds, for more than 25 years. She loves learning about their quirks and applying this knowledge to elevate their welfare and care.

This Deep Dive is geared toward ages 14+, but all are welcome.
