DCP Deep Dive: Can We Recognize Emotions in Bottlenose Dolphins?

In this Deep Dive, Emma Warner discusses her research into whether humans can recognize emotional expression and body language in bottlenose dolphins using a method called Qualitative Behavioural Assessment (QBA). Emma also delves into how this type of assessment can serve as a potential welfare indicator for investigating dolphin well-being under human care.

This program is geared toward ages 14 and up, but all will enjoy it!
