What are the threats to the well being of dolphins? What can we humans do?
Dangers to dolphins increase when we remain ignorant about how they live, and how human activities impact them.
The more we know about dolphin biology and the threats facing dolphins in the wild, the better we can protect them.
Dangers to dolphins increase when we remain ignorant about threats from human activities.
Education is important. Children can learn about how dolphins live, and how our actions on land can affect dolphins in the sea. Adults need information about specific actions to save individual dolphins, to save dolphin populations, and about species conservation.
From the start, our studies have tried to gain the knowledge that would allow us to aid conservation efforts , not only for dolphins in Sarasota Bay, but for dolphin populations around the world.
