Membership Program

The Dolphin Communication Project is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that relies on support from the public to conduct our scientific research and offer education opportunities to people of all ages. Your generosity is the lifeblood of our organization, and we could not operate without the public funds we receive through memberships, donations, and our online shop. Every scientific article we’ve published and every student mentorship opportunity we’ve provided has been made possible by financial support from people just like you. You can become a member of the Dolphin Communication Project by making a one-time donation or becoming a Sustaining Member via a monthly contribution. All members will receive a Welcome Pack which includes a welcome letter and an online subscription to our newsletter, The Dolphin Gazette. Sustaining members may also choose a free gift including a dolphin note pad, DCP water bottle (while supplies last) or a sample of dolphin trading cards.
