For Members of the Media

After 50 years of research, education and conservation, we know a lot about dolphins — from their life histories, to the ways they communicate with each other, to dolphin family structure, health and physiology. We’ve been pioneering dolphin research since our research program began in 1970 and we’re happy to share what we know with members of the news media so that information about these fascinating animals — and the threats they face in the wild — can reach the public.

If you’re a member of the media and would like to know more about our research or set up an interview with one of our experts, please contact Sondra Katzen, Media Relations Manager, Chicago Zoological Society. We’d also encourage you to spend a few minutes on this website to learn more about our history and some of our current research projects.
