The Dolphin Project
'TDP' was organized in 1989 after a mass die-off of dolphins on the Eastern seaboard of the United States. To learn more details of our history, please go to our HISTORY page. Scientists and volunteers came together to count the dolphins and photograph their dorsal fins (comparable to a human fingerprint for identification). These actions help to monitor the health of the dolphins which are the sentinel species of the estuarine environment. Since we share this environment, the well-being of these dolphins impacts our well-being too. TDP adds to the knowledge base of Bottlenose dolphins through the sharing of collected field data. Regular collaboration takes place both formally and informally with many research scientists, universities, other interested organizations and government agencies. The Dolphin Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization.
TDP members seek to contribute to the understanding of marine mammals by expanding the public's knowledge and concern for our marine environment through its Education Outreach Program that brings interesting and fun facts about dolphins into classrooms and to various organizations. Link to Edu-Outreach for more information. TDP also has produced an activity book for children entitled "Georgia's Wild Bottlenose Dolphins" which will be available for sale on this website. You'll find it soon in our Bottlenose Boutique.
