Photographs compliments of the Wild Dolphin ProjectThe Wild Dolphin Project (WDP), founded by Dr. Denise Herzing in 1985, is engaged in an ambitious, long-term scientific study of a specific pod of Atlantic spotted dolphins that live 40 miles off the coast of the Bahamas, in the Atlantic Ocean. For about 100 days each year, Phase I research has involved the photographing, videotaping, and audiotaping of a group of resident dolphins, aiming to learn about their lives.

Photographs compliments of the Wild Dolphin ProjectThe rest of the year is spent in the laboratory in Jupiter, Florida, archiving the information that has been gathered during the field season. WDP has now accumulated unprecedented amounts of baseline data about these dolphins, their relationships with other dolphins, and their daily lives in the ocean. In addition, we have grown up with, and intimately know, many of the individuals.


Photographs compliments of the Wild Dolphin ProjectJoin in one of the most exciting research endeavors in the world! This unique study of Atlantic spotted dolphins in the Bahamas is leading the way in the use of break through technology to better understand their social lives and delicate environment. We need people like you to sustain this important research project.
