"In Their World... On Their Terms..."

Our 34th year in the field is underway!

We're back from Trip #1 of the 2019 field season!

We'll have a blog coming soon from Director and Founder, Dr. Denise Herzing with more details from the first trip! Thanks to funds being raised in our GoFundMe campaign (which is still active) we deployed 3 underwater recording devices. This endeavor was a huge success last year and we hope data collected this year will help us discover our lost southern pod.  

For the month of May, MANG — a Florida based, outdoor clothing company — is collaborating with the Wild Dolphin Project. A portion of proceeds from the limited Wild Dolphin MANG collection will be donated to WDP.

Using eco-friendly and sustainable materials, MANG’s mission is to “change the world one mangrove at a time through education, coastal restoration and community stewardship,” says CEO Kyle Rossin. They make products such as hats, buffs, and performance UV 50 shirts and hoodies. For every product sold, a mangrove is planted (check out their mangrove map to see where and how many).

The Wild Dolphin Project recently interviewed Rossin, to discuss MANG, how it started, and why they’ve partnered up with non-profits like the Wild Dolphin Project. Read our MANG BLOG.

THANK YOU for your support
during the Great Give!

Wildme.org is a citizen science platform with a visual matching system already in place for whales, manta rays, and whale sharks. We would like to establish one for the Atlantic spotted dolphins! Our research team already manually matches spot patterns but we would like to solicit dive boats, other researchers, and ocean enthusiasts to upload their photos and sighting information into the wild books database so that we can better understand the ranges of the dolphins in our study areas.

Happy Earth Day!

This year we celebrated Earth Day by sharing some things that our team does to help that planet. We compiled a list of comments from our readers to share. Maybe some of these are things you hadn’t thought of and can add to your own life. We hope this is a useful resource. Read the blog HERE.
Dr. Denise Herzing has dedicated her career to studying a community of wild Atlantic spotted dolphins that live in the shallow, crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. Through non-invasive, in-water observation, she researches the animals’ social structure, behaviors and communication. Now modern technology is making it possible to correlate the dolphins’ sounds and behavior, bringing Herzing and her collaborators closer to decoding dolphin communication.
