Over the past year, Dr. Alex Brown has been leading the following collaborative project: “Supporting indigenous capacity to conduct inshore dolphin research and monitoring“.
This project aims to provide training in dolphin survey techniques to indigenous ranger groups in northern Australia, to foster collaborations between researchers and Traditional Owners, and collect valuable data on the little-know populations of snubfin, humpback and bottlenose dolphins which occur across this remote region. Read all about it on the new project page.
