Roatan Fall 2004 – A New Field Season

Preparing to Travel South

My trip begins on Saturday 11 September when I head to Roatan, Honduras to begin our second field season studying the bottlenose dolphins at the Roatan Institute of Marine Sciences, housed at Anthony's Key Resort on Roatan in Honduras.

We will have two groups of ecotourists assisting with our data collection this fall and will spend 3 weeks total gathering data and observing dolphin behavior and sounds. Since I learned recently that there were 2-3 new calves born this summer, or soon to be born this fall, our field time should be very fun and interesting.

I will post another note soon about trip preparations.
However, with hurrican season approaching, I might not be able to post updates more than once a week. Know that I will keep you posted on our research and thanks for your patience with potential delays in getting details to you.
