Dolphin Spotter-A New Land Based Citizen Science Project (St. Lucie Audubon)
March 2 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Presenter: Samantha McGuire, Master’s Marine Science, Graduate Research Assistant, FAU Harbor Branch Ocean Discovery. Samantha has done various research in marine mammals including dolphins and manatees.
Come learn more about this unique project. Like a fingerprint, dolphins can be identified by the unique pattern of nicks and notches on the dorsal fin. Hear about the current research and how this new program helps to fill in the gaps along the shore. Citizen scientist participants can take photos of dolphins from land, submit online, and follow along with an interactive map. After the presentation, you will have an opportunity to register to participate in the Dolphin Spotter program. No experience is needed to be a Dolphin spotter!
Also, before the presentation begins, the annual Grace Stock Awards will be presented to three STEM students for their outstanding projects on conservation.
