When you’re working with animals as precocious as dolphins, the lines can sometimes be blurred as to who is observing whom!
Dr. Kathleen Dudzinski experienced this recently as she was attaching her Wildlife Acoustics SM2M+ marine recorder to a piling to record dolphin sounds. As you can see in the photos and video we posted, she was quickly greeted by delphinid visitors who were very curious about the bright new yellow object being installed!
Many of these dolphins are not strangers to Dr. Dudzinski, however. She’s been visiting and studying them at Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences (RIMS) in Honduras since 2003.
