Rough-Tooth Dolphin Project

Help Fund The Rough Tooth Project!

This project will provide support for research being done with rough-toothed dolphins at Gulf World in Panama City Beach, FL to gain a better understanding of these amazing creatures.  The Rough Tooth Project offers a valuable opportunity to expand our knowledge of this understudied species. Insights gained from our research will provide valuable knowledge about the natural communication systems, social structures, and behavior of rough-toothed dolphins.

Specifically, the funds raised will go toward the purchase of research equipment including hydrophones, audio recording equipment, and other supplies needed for acoustic data collection. If crowdfunding proves successful, we will be able to conduct multiple studies using the equipment from this project.
