This operation is currently on pause pending changes the government of the Bahamas has made to the issuing of research permits. We have no idea when we will be able to renew our research permit.

We operate out of the facilities of the Dolphin Communication Project, in collaboration with Daisy Kaplan, Kelly Melillo-Sweeting and Al Sweeting. Here our studies center on understanding bowriding behavior, particularly as a social activity, in the population of resident spotted Atlantic dolphins. Surveys here are conducted both from the vessel and by divers in the water taking photo and video footage of the animals.
