DCP is pleased to announce the newest dolphin available for adoption: Joanne! Joanne (ID#86) was first documented by researchers in 2004, but they had a hard time keeping her straight! This adult female's distinct pattern behind her blowhole is easy to see from the boat; the pattern below her eye is easy to see under water.

It's that time of year folks - the last issue for the year of The Dolphin Gazette is here!
Just in time for the holiday season, this issue is jam-packed with updates from the field, education programs and ways that you can support DCP. Updates include that from Kathleen's work at Dolphin Encounters; and let's just say dolphins aren't the only marine mammals making an appearance!
DCP's Dolphin Research Trainee program got the attention from local newspaper, The Day. A video showcasing DRT participants' experiences at our Bimini, Bahamas field site will be premiered on 9 October from 11:30 - 1:30 p.m. at Mystic Cinema in Old Mistick Village. The event is free and open to the public. Check out The Day article by clicking here.

Thanks for the support Sandra!

The Dolphin Gazette - August 2010!
Our latest Gazette is hot off the press! This issue of the Gazette focuses on our hugely successful summer programs, including a trip from the Dolphin Research Trainees to Bimini, as well as updates from our two summer interns; Cat and Janan, Also, we announce our new Membership Program and Dolphin Trading cards.
All new DCP Membership Program
DCP welcomes the support of our dolphin adoptive parents, our DRT participants (and parents) and our members. Over the past several years, DCP has revamped most of our programs - making them more accessible, with more current information and reflecting our expanding set of results and programs. Our last remaining program for revision is our Membership Program. DCP is pleased to unveil our completely redesigned Membership Programs. These memberships allow a DCP supporter to target which aspect of DCP’s programs their donated funds will assist. And, in keeping with a conservation focus, DCP is offering a few select items for each membership that reflect environmental stewardship throughout the year. So, take a gander at our new Membership Program details and join our efforts!
