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.
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.
Planning to Adopt-A-Dolphin this holiday season?
If you want your adoption kit to arrive before the 25th of December, you must place your order and choose Economy Shipping NO LATER than December 15th or Expedited Shipping NO LATER THAN December 17th. These orders should arrive by December 24th. Any order placed after the 17th might not arrive before the 25th. We will be able to email you a PDF or jpg of your Adoption Certificate if you order after the 17th (which you can print out so you at least have something to put under the tree), but the kit itself might arrive after the 25th. Note also that the DCP office will be closed from December 24th through December 27th.

Are you already a fan?
Well, the dolphins are gearing up for a fan competition. There is lots of chatter over which dolphin will get the most "Likes" before 1 January 2010. Some are saying it will be the adventurous Lil' Jess, while others are rooting for fun-loving Addie. Maybe it will be social butterfly Split Jaw or spunky Nemo. You can help decide which dolphin will have the most "Likes" before the New Year. So log on and "Like" today!
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.
