DCP Deep Dive: A Dolphin’s Guide to Maintaining Friendships
Emma Chereskin talks about the male bottlenose dolphins of Shark Bay, Australia in this “Deep Dive.” These dolphins form the most complex alliance structure outside of humans. Forming alliances, and maintaining those friendships, is vital in securing paternities and protecting females from rival males. In this talk, Emma explores the wide variety of mechanisms, such as touch, synchrony, and sound, used by these dolphins to maintain their decades-long friendships.

DCP Deep Dive: Distribution of dolphins in nearshore Bimini waters
In this talk, you’ll learn more about DCP’s study on the sympatric distribution of Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins immediately off Bimini’s shores. How do these two dolphin species stay separate? And what type of behaviors do we observe in this nearshore area? Two of the authors, Kel Melillo-Sweeting and Christine Ribic led this talk. The topic was also presented at the SMM conference in August 2022 and featured in a 2022 episode of The Dolphin Pod.
