Maritime Heritage Series: Getting to Know Beaufort’s Dolphins

March 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event
Free

Museum Natural Science Curator Keith Rittmaster will discuss the biology and behavior of the bottlenose dolphins that frequent the waters around Beaufort. He will also cover the conservation issues that affect these marine mammals.  Bottlenose dolphins occur in Beaufort year-round, but they are not the same individuals, and we’re learning a lot from photo-ID observations and stranding reports.

Free, no registration required for the in-person program, held in the museum auditorium. Or watch online live via the museum’s Facebook page or Zoom.

Registration and Refund Policy:

Registration costs, less a 10% fee, are refunded when the museum receives cancellation notice at least 48 hours before the start of a program. There is no refund within 48 hours of the start of a program, and tickets cannot be transferred to a later program date within that 48 hour timeframe. Due to material costs and supply, Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center Courses require a 2-week notification for cancellations; only the course fee is refunded if cancellation occurs prior to 2 weeks. The Museum reserves the right to cancel any program that does not meet the minimum participant requirement up to one week before the program is scheduled. In the event of cancellation due to low enrollment, participants who have submitted a fee will receive a full refund. If a program is canceled due to inclement weather and unable to be rescheduled for another date, the participants will receive a full refund.
