Dolphin Research Update-10 year report

Dolphin Scientists, Chandra Salgado Kent and Delphine Chabanne have released a new research paper, combining 10 years of Dolphin Watch citizen science reports with scientific vessel surveys.

The aim of this study was to undertake a comparative analysis of spatial and temporal patterns of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops aduncus) sighted in the Swan Canning Riverpark (Western Australia) collected from two survey modes (citizen science and scientific vessel surveys); and thereby inform management directly and plan for ongoing future monitoring.
