There is no charge for the orientation or training.
Members do pay their own survey expenses which are tax-deductible; those costs will be explained during the orientation and are also located on the SURVEY page under the RESEARCH tab. There are minimal survey fees involved for Team Leaders, Assistants and Photographers.
Training workshops are held on the coast and in the Atlanta area.
The program devotes the first hour to the Bottlenose Dolphin and the second hour is a workshop on how to conduct research surveys. If you are not interested in participating in surveys but would like to learn more about our estuarine dolphins, you are not obligated to attend the training workshop.
