VOLUNTEERS for RESEARCH ~ CONSERVATION ~ EDUCATION
THE DOLPHIN PROJECT was organized in 1989 after a mass die-off of dolphins on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. To learn more details of our history, please go to our HISTORY page under the HOME tab. Scientists and volunteers came together to count the dolphins and photograph their dorsal fins (comparable to a human fingerprint for identification). These actions help monitor the health of the dolphins which are the sentinel species of their estuarine environment. Since we share this environment, the well-being of these dolphins impacts our well-being too. For over 24 years, THE DOLPHIN PROJECT ('TDP') has added to the knowledge base of Bottlenose dolphins through the sharing of collected field data. Regular collaboration takes place both formally and informally with many research scientists, universities, other interested organizations and government agencies. (go to our DATA page for details) THE DOLPHIN PROJECT is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization.
TDP members seek to contribute to the understanding of marine mammals by expanding the public's knowledge and concern for our marine environment through its Education Outreach Program that brings interesting and fun facts about dolphins into classrooms and to various organizations. Click on the EDUCATION tab above for more information. Our volunteers are eager to teach all ages about these amazing dolphins and their environemtn we share with them.
TDP members have opportunities to participate in research and education projects. It's all fun and fascinating and a great way to make new friends. Click on the tabs above to learn more about us. .
