How do you study dolphins?


All good science starts with a question. What is a good question to start studying and understanding our local common dolphins?

Key understandings

As marine mammals, dolphins spend their lives in the water. Consequently, studying them is a challenge. So how can scientists learn more about dolphins without getting wet themselves?

The important stuff

Audience: Secondary school students and community members who would like to understand more about how good cetacean science works.

Time: 60 minutes

Delivery: Incursion, online, or excursion (venue and hire to be arranged)

No. of students: A class (minimum 25, maximum 30)

Resources required: Curiosity, and a love of learning about wildlife. No writing or note-taking required, unless you too want to study dolphins or marine mammals one day.
