We have all been very excited about extending our research to the Matanzas River in St. Augustine, but unfortunately, that area may not be the right place for a second research site. The winds are often strong, and the water is murky. We will have to find another place instead.
Throughout the years, Dolphin Discoveries has had many exciting and sad times. Today, let’s look back at what’s happened in Aprils past
Yesterday, we discovered that a Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) in Gasaprilla Sound, who we have named “Nori Zith,” apparently has an entanglement scar on her peduncle.
We would like to give a big thank you to @timsagator on Instagram for tagging us in the comments under a video taken in Gasparilla Sound, apparently on February 25, 2017.
We immediately recognized Zakat in the video, so Zakat’s calf, Valkkai, was also likely present.
Did you know that March is Dolphin Awareness Month?
Happy birthday month, Zephyr! This month, Zephyr turns one year old!
Using the markings on a dolphin’s belly to ID it? Yes, it’s true!
