Diving Into Dolphin Diets

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

Students will participate in an interactive studio based program with Dolphin Research Center Staff to learn about what it takes to care for dolphins and how caretakers use math to develop their diets with Talon, a common bottlenose dolphin. At the end, students have the opportunity to ask a dolphin expert questions about dolphins while also learning how they can lessen their impact on the marine environment. All webinars include a live instructor interaction with video clips from all around our beautiful Florida Keys facility.

Program Details

Format

This is a studio based program. Students will be able to interact with an educator in our studio as well as see pre-recorded video from around our facility.
The program will begin with introduction of the instructor and an explanation of where Dolphin Research Center is located.
We will provide a brief overview of the Dolphin Research Center family (dolphins and sea lions)
Students share the ways in which they use math, and then discuss with the instructor the ways in which marine mammal professionals use math.
Instructor discusses how much dolphins weigh and how much they eat.
Students work with the instructor to complete mathematical calculations related to dolphin diets.
Instructor discusses what dolphins eat and how professionals prepare their food for them.
Instructor discusses conservation issues facing marine mammals and what students can do to make a difference.

Objectives

Students will be able to explain the different manners in which math may be used by marine mammal professionals.
Students will complete basic calculations in regards to diet and size for marine mammals using basic operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

Ocean Literacy Principles
5A Ocean life ranges in size from the smallest living things, microbes, to the largest animal on Earth, blue whales.
5D Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations, and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics, and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
6D Humans affect the ocean in a variety of ways. Laws, regulations, and resource management affect what is taken out and put into the ocean. Human development and activity leads to pollution (point source, nonpoint source, and noise pollution), changes to ocean chemistry (ocean acidification), and physical modifications (changes to beaches, shores, and rivers). In addition, humans have removed most of the large vertebrates from the ocean.
6G Everyone is responsible for caring for the ocean. The ocean sustains life on Earth and humans must live in ways that sustain the ocean. Individual and collective actions are needed to effectively manage ocean resources for all.
