It’s November and time to celebrate the season of giving! When you purchase a Discover Florida Oceans license plate, you directly contribute to research on the Indian River Lagoon that helps us learn more about Florida dolphins like the one pictured here from our survey last week.
Funds from this program allow research scientist and volunteers to conduct surveys where they photograph, document and assess each dolphin sighted. Last week our Florida team conducted two very busy dolphin surveys covering the Mosquito Lagoon and the Halifax River. We saw several animals leaping and playing with fish – a total of 50 groups of dolphins made up of 226 animals.
