DPMMR’s Photo-ID researchers conducted multiple photo-ID surveys between Key Largo and Islamorada at the end of August on both Atlantic and Florida Bay sides. The first day resulted in 3 sightings with a total of 7 individual dolphins which are identified by the nicks and notches on their dorsal fins. Of these dolphins, 4 have been previously sighted within the Upper Keys region. These re-sights suggest strong site fidelity to the region which has implications for management and conservation efforts.

Sunscreen Deconstructed

Do not forget the sunscreen. Beach day? Tubing? Waterpark? Yup! Bring the sunscreen. It’s part of our daily routine and has become a standard for skin protection in all areas of our lives. It is important. It is necessary.
