Dolphin Mysteries: Unlocking the Secret of Communication

November 18, 2008

Humans have long since been fascinated by dolphins, but the details of their lives and communication have remained elusive. Today on Focus, we're joined by marine researchers Kathleen Dudzinski and Toni Frohoff. They'll talk about the strides they've made in dolphin research, and how they've proved that dolphins have social signals that they can use to share information among themselves and with humans.

Guests: Kathleen Dudzinski, Ph.D. (Director of the Dolphin Communication Project; co-editor of Aquatic Mammals; Adjunct Faculty of the University of Southern Mississippi, Alaska Pacific University, and the University of Rhode Island) and Toni Frohoff, Ph.D. (Director of TerraMar Research; Research Director of the Whale Stewardship Project; Faculty Affiliate for the Kerulos Centre; co-editor of Between Species: Celebrating The Dolphin-Human Bond)
