Dozens of budding dolphin researchers and their parents descended on DRI’s centre in Hastings on Wednesday, determined to be a Dolphin Researcher for the Day! Here they learnt about echo-location, how dolphins talk to each other, how they find their food – and how we can tell them apart.

They spent the morning learning about whales and dolphins before testing their skills at fin identification, just like our own researchers do. And a special visit by Bottles the Dolphin made everyone’s day.
