DolphinWatch: Dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay

Presented by Dr. Helen Bailey

Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas they are using and why. Dr. Bailey and her team have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay and last summer, citizen scientists reported more than 900 dolphin sightings on Dr. Bailey’s newly launched DolphinWatch website. In this talk, Dr. Bailey will present what she has learnt about the Bay’s dolphins so far, describe upgrades to the sighting app, and explain how you can participate in this research effort.
