Nicks ‘n’ Notches is the annual report of the Chicago Zoological Society’s Sarasota Dolphin Research Program. Each issue contains an annual summary of the research, conservation, education and outreach activities conducted by the Program, as well as recognition of those who have made financial or in-kind donations of support.

The Program welcomes financial donations, as well as donations of equipment, such as boats, computers, cameras and vehicles. To find out how you can support the Program, please contact Cindy Zeigler, CZS Chief Advancement Officer, at 708.688.8263.

Looking ahead to 50 more years of marine mammal research, conservation, and education.

As we celebrate the accomplishments and amazingly productive (and fun) collaborations we developed during our first 50 years, we also look toward the future. We look forward to continuing our existing research and education partnerships, implementing new ones and further developing and refining some of our new field techniques as we expand our ecological studies. Most of all, we look forward to the opportunity to continue to learn about the dolphins of Sarasota Bay, who we have gotten to know so well over the past half-century, and applying what we learn to their benefit, and to help with dolphin conservation elsewhere around the world.
