At our beautiful field site on Bimini, The Bahamas, the Dolphin Communication Project studies a group of wild Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis) that frequent the clear blue waters of the island. Using special underwater video and audio equipment, we have been able to identify and catalog many of the individuals comprising this group, learning much about group structure and dolphin social behavior. By adopting one of the Bimini dolphins, you will be helping to fund our non-profit research group's research, education, and conservation efforts that will directly benefit the Bimini dolphins. Hardcopy adoption kits cost just $35 for a full year and electronic adoption kits cost just $30 – either way, that's less than $3 a month! The perfect gift! International shipping now available.

Note: Each year, DCP Adopt-A-Wild-Dolphin print and electronic kits have been updated with new video for streaming that feature the Bimini dolphins. Due to our interrupted Bimini 2021 field season, we are unable to create this year’s adoption video. We hope you’ll still consider supporting DCP via our Adopt-A-Wild-Dolphin program; kits continue to include great dolphin info, photos, past videos, and more. And, as a special thank you, all Adopt-A-Wild-Dolphin print kits starting now and throughout 2022 will come with 3 DCP stickers, free!
