For more than 20 years, researchers have studied the behavioral ecology of spotted and bottlenose dolphins in the Bahamas. The Bahamian dolphin populations are very acclimated to human beings, allowing for the unique opportunity to observe these animals in their natural environment. This program offers students the opportunity to learn about sensory systems while actively being involved with research studying the behavior and communication of dolphins.
