"As part of the project we collect stream samples two times per month at four streams in western Maryland... I’ve found during the quiet time while I’m hiking through the woods I come up with new ideas and thoughts regarding possible hypotheses to test with our project."
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.
