NMMF Scientific Snapshot - Echolocation in Bottlenose Dolphins
NMMF's Katie Christman, Research Associate in our Biologic & Bioacoustic Research team, will discuss the unique capability of echolocation in Bottlenose dolphins that allows them to navigate and forage accurately in low visibility waters. This presentation will focus on why dolphin echolocation is important to study and how understanding their echolocation can lead to better conservation efforts for all echolocating species that live in our oceans. Additionally, the presentation will discuss how echolocation is successfully researched when the sound that dolphins use during echolocation is well outside the range of human hearing.
