Data collection and a Free Day
Our trip went by VERY swiftly this session but was very successful. The six students representing five clubs from the Boys & Girls Clubs did a great job assisting with data collection, learned much about the underwater world and Bahamian culture, and just plain had fun.
A visit to the Straw Market allowed several folks to get their hair braided (a must when you visit the Bahamas) as well as see the tourist sites down town.
For data, we collected 5.5 hours of video with several sessions done observing the mother/calf pairs. All three calves have grown so much! They are now almost one year old and quite precocious!
All in all a good week for data and education.
We return to Dolphin Encounters in January 2008.
