“Dolphin Doctor: On the Front Lines of Marine Mammal Medicine” will focus on marine mammal medical research and technology and also introduce students to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) principles.
Our team of researchers and veterinarians use the latest advances in veterinary medicine and the best available science to care for marine mammals in locations around the world. Our team is in a unique position to share cutting-edge marine mammal science, as well as teach STEM concepts with real-world applications. An important asset of our program is that our outreach staff are all primarily scientific researchers and marine mammal veterinarians who have a passion for sharing our work with the community. Students rarely are exposed to direct interaction with STEM professionals actively working on important conservation projects.
