For more that 12 years I have supported the Dolphin Communication Project's mission of research and education. I have documented their studies, worked as a research associate, produced dozens of media products and spent more that a decade on their board of directors. This year's research expedition for the Dolphin Communication Project (DCP) to the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) was a resounding success! DCP continued our studies of the 19 Atlantic bottlenose dolphins that call Bailey's Key home. On this trip, we met 7 new dolphins born between summer 2011 and 2013; Kathleen collected 6 hours of video, roughly one hour per day, collected in two sessions per day. We also deployed the SM2M+, an underwater acoustic recorder, on Monday (10/28) and recovered it on Friday (11/1). With each entry for MVA data collection, Kathleen confirmed that the SM2M+ was recording data; i.e., the LED light at the tip of the hydrophone is red when recording and off (no color) when not. It was a relief to see the light was on and the cycle working. We recorded 10 minutes of every hour (round the clock) for a total of 4 hours of audio data collected. We listened to a few tracks and will continue detailed analyses over the winter months. From these data, we'll get a glimpse at how vocal the dolphins are at night in comparison to daytime hours. Very exciting observations! We look forward to a return field research session to RIMS in 2014. But until then, we have this video to remind us of the productive field session and the detailed interactions among the dolphins!
