Thank you for reporting your dolphin sightings!
We were amazed by how many sightings we had this year.
Over 900 sightings were reported because our tracker—Chesapeake Dolphin Watch—was launched in late June 2017. Bottlenose dolphins occurred throughout the Bay, including in many rivers and creeks. Sightings peaked in June to August and then became more southerly during the autumn.
Thank you supporting this research. We look forward to learning more in 2018!
