Shift Change – the students depart Saturday and two others arrive

We were able to get one more session of data collection in this morning (early again) before Amanda, Amber, Kristin and Sarah had to finish packing their gear. The dolphins were active and vocal and provided a nice salute to our student observers. Even though the field portion of their class on animal behavior is complete, each student now has the task of reviewing and processing the observational data they collected and preparing a paper that includes their data and a literature review on their topics.

The next team includes Penn and Wu-Jung. They arrived later in the afternoon so our first review of DCP’s research here at RIMS and our first data collection session begin tomorrow morning.

Cheers for now,
