MERR to hold dolphin count July 18

July 13, 2020

The Marine Education, Research and Rehabilitation Institute Inc. will hold its annual dolphin count from  9 to 11 a.m., Saturday, July 18.

Volunteers will be stationed at predesignated observation points throughout the state from Fenwick Island to Woodland Beach. Results from this count will help to determine population stability in Atlantic bottlenose dolphins in this region.

As part of MERR’s commitment to responsible safety practices during the coronavirus pandemic, fewer participants, and only individuals or people from the same household, will be stationed at each site.

For more information, or to volunteer for the count, contact MERR Institute at 302-228-5029 or email
