Presented by Jamie Testa, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science – Chesapeake Biological Laboratory

Chesapeake DolphinWatch launched its app in 2017 to engage Bay residents and visitors in a research program studying when dolphins visit Chesapeake Bay and where they go. Since then, the DolphinWatch team has gathered incredible information on dolphin presence, distribution, and behavior in our estuary. In this seminar, Project Coordinator Jamie Testa will discuss the research findings from the first 5 years of DolphinWatch, how graduate students at UMCES Chesapeake Biological Laboratory are advancing dolphin research in Chesapeake Bay, and future plans for the research.

This fall, the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory will offer seminars in a hybrid format: you can choose to attend in person, or join via Zoom.

Directions for in person attendance, or a Zoom participation link, will be sent to the email address you provide during registration.
