DCP Deep Dive: Monitoring dolphins using whistles

121

In this Deep Dive, Emma Longden discusses using bottlenose dolphins’ signature whistles - an individually unique whistle, a bit like a dolphin name - to count the number of individuals in a population. After all, dolphins use a variety of sounds for communication, feeding, and navigation. Scientists can use these sounds to monitor and study their populations.

This program is geared toward ages 14 and up, but all are welcome.
