Virtual Lecture—Connecting Children and Families with Dolphin Conservation at Sarasota Bay

If you’ve ever vacationed along Florida’s west coast, you may have had the great fortune of seeing bottlenose dolphins swimming in Sarasota Bay. Many of the dolphins found in this area have been studied by Chicago Zoological Society’s Sarasota Dolphin Research Program staff, including Dr. Katherine McHugh, deputy program director and senior scientist. Join Dr. McHugh for an enlightening presentation as she shares some of the programs, strategies, and partnerships the world’s longest-running study of a wild dolphin population uses to connect children and families with these charismatic marine mammals. Additionally, she will discuss the dolphins’ underwater habitats in Sarasota Bay and opportunities to get involved in dolphin conservation. Following the presentation, there will be a question and answer session. The lecture, which begins at 7 p.m. CT, is free, although a $10 donation is appreciated. Online reservations are required and can be made at
