This field season has been amazing! Co-founder Dr. May-Collado and her students from The University of Vermont travelled to Sierpe, Cuajiniquil, and Uvita in the Pacific coast of Costa Rica to obtain acoustic recordings of spinner, pantropical spotted, and bottlenose dolphins, and humpback whales. They also deployed long-term autonomous acoustic recorders to study spatial and temporal changes on their acoustic behavior. This information will help informed how these species use these locations, and together with other research teams at University of Costa Rica studying the ecology of sharks and rays, sea turtles and coral reefs, we will be able to generate a holistic understanding of the marine megafauna and marine communities of Costa Rica. This is a long-term collaboration between the May-Collado Lab and Panacetacea.
