Name a dolphin

Our Name-a-Dolphin program is currently on hold. We expect to have a limited number of dolphins available for naming in October and November - check back for updated information! We currently offer 25 dolphins in our Adopt-a-Dolphin program; adopting a dolphin is $30.  Check out all the biographies on the DCP web site.

DCP and KOL

Video interviews with Kathleen, Darcie, and Kelly are all available on KOL's website! These, and more fun programming regarding DCP and our research on dolphins can be explored.

The Dolphin Pod

Join us for DCP's podcast, The Dolphin Pod. New podcasts are offered regularly, with special video podcasts posted occasionally. The Dolphin Pod is a weekly science podcast dedicated to all things dolphin; we will bring you up-to-date with scientifically accurate information on dolphin behavior, cognition, communication, anatomy ...you name it, and we'll talk about it. 

Ecoutours 2008

 In 2008, DCP will be offering three ecotours!
We will continue to visit the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) at Anthony's Key Resort in September but will add a week-long ecotour in May 2008 as well! Visit the ecotour page for more details!

Additionally, we are offering a long weekend ecotour in January 2008 to Bimini, The Bahamas. Folks interested in a short trip to a tropical destination can join Kelly Melillo to study the spotted and bottlenose dolphins residing north of Bimini. Details and contact information can be found on our Ecotour page.
