Dolphin Watch Annual Report 2015 -16

The Dolphin Watch Annual Report 2015 -16 is available online.  

What we know now is that dolphin 'hotspots' in the rivers change with the season!
You can spot dolphins frequently in Melville Water near the Narrows Bridge in autumn and winter.
In contrast, the entrance to the Canning River is used relatively consistently throughout the year.

With eight years of dolphin monitoring under our belt, the Dolphin Watch project is helping scientists to learn more about our resident community of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins.

Catch up on the discoveries from the research scientists and our team of citizen scientists in the latest Annual Report here.
