DolphinWatch: Dolphins in the Chesapeake Bay

March 28, 2017 7:00pm to 8:00pm
Little is known about how often dolphins come into the Chesapeake Bay, how long they spend there, what areas of the Bay they are using and why. Dr. Helen Bailey and her team at the Chesapeake Biological Laboratory have been frequently detecting dolphin calls in the Bay. They are now working to develop an observation network that will provide information on dolphin distribution and encourage local residents to report their sightings and learn more about these animals.

A View into the Secret Lives of Animals on the Swim

April 4, 2017 7:00pm to 8:00pm
As gravity-bound, flat-land primates, we struggle to fully imagine the fluid lives of fish, marine mammals, and birds as they push and pull their way through a three-dimensional aqueous realm. Through observing systems and telemetry, scientists are discovering marvelous adaptations in how marine animals contend with seawater, which both opposes and leverages locomotion as animals swim, dive, lunge, or simply stay put. In this talk Dr. Dave Secor will review the mechanics and behaviors of marine animals as they school, feed, migrate, and persevere.
