Students will participate in an interactive studio based program with Dolphin Research Center Staff to learn about the impacts of the BP Oil Spill on dolphins in the Gulf of Mexico. Students will get to hear the story of Louie, a dolphin that was rescued from the oil spill. Mathematical calculations are integrated into the discussion. 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.
