Vee

 

 

Vee (ID#101) - Vee, a female Atlantic spotted dolphin, has been observed by DCP since 2012. We monitor her spot development carefully – so far, she has no nicks or scars! Because of this, researchers rely on her spot pattern to recognize her, year after year. Thankfully, she seems fairly interested in the boat and our cameras, which allows us to document her new spot development and associations over time.

Adoption kits cost $30 for the electronic version, and $35 for the hardcopy version. See the "What's in your Adoption Kit?" below to learn more about what you'll receive in each version of the dolphin adoption kit. Adoptions are valid for a full year.

Sulfur

 

 

Sulfur, DCP ID#102, is a juvenile, female Atlantic spotted dolphin. DCP has been observing her off the coast of Bimini, The Bahamas since 2013. She is recognizable even before we enter the water, as she has two distinct notches in the center of her dorsal fin. In 2013, Sulfur also suffered an injury to her peduncle. Though this injury healed very well, it has left a permanent scar. Neither of these markings slow her down though! She is a busy dolphin, seen in a variety of social groups. Like “Seabeagle” (ID#106), Sulfur has also been observed with fellow juveniles, Inka (#93) and Paul (#99).

Adoption kits cost $30 for the electronic version, and $35 for the hardcopy version. See the "What's in your Adoption Kit?" below to learn more about what you'll receive in each version of the dolphin adoption kit. Adoptions are valid for a full year.

Seabeagle


Seabeagle (ID#106) is a young, female Atlantic spotted dolphin. She was first observed off the coast of Bimini, The Bahamas in 2013. She has been seen every year since, including quite a bit in 2016! She was recognizable even before she had many spots as she an injury to the center of her fluke (tail). Unfortunately, she suffered an additional fluke injury and is now missing the majority of the left side of her tail. This doesn't slow her down though, and she is often seen with other juveniles, including Inka (#93) and Paul (#99).

J. Daisy Kaplan, Ph.D.

Daisy Kaplan has been studying the behavior of dolphins and whales for over a decade. She completed her Master’s degree at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth, where she studied juvenile social interactions among wild spotted dolphins in White Sand Ridge, Bahamas, while leading ecotourist groups for Oceanic Society. She then served as a researcher and naturalist for The Whale Center of New England, studying the behavior of humpback whales. Her PhD work looked at the acoustic characteristics and contextual use of whistles in sympatric species of wild bottlenose and spotted dolphins in Bimini, The Bahamas. Her current area of study is in communication and the use of biphonation in dolphins. She is a Professor at St. Mary's College of Maryland.

During her Master's research, Daisy collaborated with Kathleen; Daisy's relationship with DCP strengthened as she began utilizing Bimini for her Ph.D. work. As our collaborations grew, it became more and more apparent that we are better together! We look forward to more joint publications and education programs as well as a general cooperative interaction that means more data collection and more project results!
