DCP Deep Dive: Social Bonds in Atlantic Spotted Dolphins

You’ve probably imagined dolphins having relationships much like those of us and other primates.

But, how on earth can scientists actually measure such a thing?

Join newly minted Ph.D. Dr. Nicole Danaher-Garcia as she shares more about her investigations into the social bonds among the Atlantic spotted dolphins off Bimini, The Bahamas. This program is geared toward ages 14 and up, but all are welcome.

You can prepare by watching (or re-watching!) Dr. Nicole’s spring DCP webinar on using coefficients of association to understand spotted dolphin “friendships” on YouTube, or here on the DCP website under the webinars tab.
