Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas they are using and why. Dr. Bailey and her team have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay and citizen scientists have reported more than 1,000 dolphin sightings on Dr. Bailey’s newly launched Chesapeake DolphinWatch mobile app and website. In this talk, Dr. Bailey will present what she has learnt about the Bay’s dolphins so far, describe the sighting app, and explain how you can participate in this research effort.

This program is supported by the Cove Point Natural Heritage Trust.

Speaker: Dr. Helen Bailey, Research Associate Professor at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science
