A place of research and learning


Dolphins helping dolphins

Helen, the Pacific white-sided dolphin in this exhibit was rescued after she had been entangled and injured by fixed fishing nets. Now she's helping researchers understand how dolphins use their sonar (echolocation) to locate objects in the water. This research might one day lead to fishing nets and deterrent devices that will allow dolphins in the wild to avoid them.
