The Dolphins of Sarasota Bay
This picture shows four long-term Sarasota Bay resident dolphin mothers with their calves entering Big Pass from the Gulf of Mexico.
After 50 years of study, we really know the dolphins of Sarasota Bay. The dolphins here are an identifiable social unit — a dolphin community with roughly defined geographical boundaries, bordered by other dolphin communities. And we know a lot about this community: We know mothers and grandmothers, best friends and dolphin hangouts. We even know what many of the Bay’s dolphins sound like.
Now, you can meet some of the dolphins of Sarasota Bay, too! Just click on the picture to read about a dolphin’s life and even listen to its voice!
