Maritime Heritage Series: Getting to Know Beaufort’s Dolphins

December 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Hybrid Hybrid Event

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.
