Meet Your Area Dolphins

The Research Team on board the Dolphin Explorer is happy to share information about your area dolphins with the Coastal Breeze News readers. Each edition an individual will be profiled so that you, too, might get to know them. Dolphins can be identified by the nicks and marks on their dorsal fins.

Meet Tateo

This adult female is seen more at the entrance to the Gulf than in the Marco River. Notice the smaller fin next to her. Tateo gave birth to a new calf in mid-August.

This is the first newborn we have noticed for the fall birthing season. Keep an eye on the water for this unique fin… and the little one, Teigan, swimming close by.
