The Dolphin Communication Project (DCP) is focused on the dual goals of scientific research and education: Guests will accompany DCP researcher Kelly Melillo-Sweeting in search of Atlantic spotted and common bottlenose dolphins.
"Researchers have learned that dolphins live in large, complex social groups in which individual dolphins form and switch alliances with other dolphins. Fieldworkers have even observed 'alliances of alliances,’ where one group of allies forms an alliance with another group of allies. These social groupings may be similar to the cliques people form. Dolphins and whales are multicultural, too. Different groups have different dialects and feeding and play behaviors." -- Temple Grandin
