Dolphins are endlessly fascinating to us, perhaps because so much of their lives is spent underwater, where it’s hard for us to see what they’re doing! For more than 50 years, our research has been focused on uncovering their mysterious lives. We want to learn everything we can about them — where they live, what they do, who they associate with, what they eat, and more. But our work isn’t just about satisfying a simple curiosity. We need to answer these questions to the best of our ability in order to protect wild dolphin populations and the places where they call home.
