    | Contributor(s):: Nakita Câmara, Eva Sierra, Antonio Fernández, Manuel Arbelo, Yara Bernaldo de Quirós, Marina Arregui, Francesco Consoli, Pedro Herráez

    Capture myopathy (CM) is described in wild animals as a metabolic syndrome resulting from the extreme stress suffered during and after capture, handling, restraint, and transport. Although CM has been characterized in many species of cetaceans, descriptions of cardiac injury—an important...

  2. Enrichment with classical music enhances affiliative behaviours in bottlenose dolphin

  3. Sustainable Whale-watching for the Philippines: A Bioeconomic Model of the Spinner Dolphin (Stenella Longirostris)

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Allison Jenny Santos

    Whale-watching provides economic opportunities worldwide and particularly proliferates in developing countries, such as the Philippines. The sustainability of whale-watching is increasingly debated as these activities also negatively impact cetaceans through changes in behavior, communication,...

  4. The Effect of Boat Type on Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops trucatus) Behavior in the Mississippi Sound

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Maria Zapetis

    Increases in oceanic shipping are a global phenomenon, and a leading cause of concern for marine animal welfare. While it may be difficult to assess the effect of boat traffic on all species in all contexts, it is vital to report anthropogenic impacts where longitudinal data is available, and...

  5. An Analysis of Innovate Training with Bottlenose Dolphins (Tursiops truncatus)

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Raymond John Van Steyn

    The National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland conducted a training program in 2014 to develop a gestural command for their dolphins called “innovate”. This training paradigm was developed to resemble the seminal research by Pryor, Haag and O’Reilly (1969), as well as more...

  6. Visitor attachment to dolphins during an interaction programme, are there implications to dolphin behavior?

    | Contributor(s):: Welsh, T., Ward, S.

  7. Animals and Humans on Stage: Live Performances at Sea World on the Gold Coast

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Rebecca Scollen

    The purpose of this study is to investigate animal and human relations as constructed, and as demonstrated, through the live performances at Sea World on the Gold Coast, Australia. Particular attention is placed upon the meanings generated by the intersection of the starring animals and humans...

  8. The Impact of Dolphins on Children's Mental Health: Longitudinal Analyses of Three Interaction Programs

    | Contributor(s):: Dominick, Whitney

  9. Changes in Tursiops truncatus Distribution and Behavior in the Drowned Cayes, Belize, and Correlation to Human Impacts

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Jazmin Garcia

    Human interaction greatly influences the behavior and distribution of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus). This project focuses on the distribution and behavior of bottlenose dolphins in the Drowned Cayes, Belize. Prior to the 2000s, the area was relatively undeveloped and undisturbed and...

  10. Play Behavior in Two Captive Bottlenose Dolphin Calves (Tursiops Truncatus): Ethogram, Ontogeny, and Individual Differences

    Dolphin-Assisted Therapies (DAT) are alternative therapies aimed to reduce anxiety levels, stress relief and physical benefits. This paper is focused on measuring and analyzing dolphins brain activity when DAT is taking place in order to identify if there is any differences in female...

  16. People -- Marine Mammal Interactions

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Andrew Butterworth (editor), Mark P. Simmonds (editor)

    Our relationships with marine mammals are complex. We have used them as resources, and in some places this remains the case; viewed them as competitors and culled them (again ongoing in some localities); been so captivated and intrigued by them that we have taken them into captivity for our...

  18. An Overview of Increasing Incidents of Bottlenose Dolphin Harassment in the Gulf of Mexico and Possible Solutions

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Courtney S. Vail

    The panhandle region of the Gulf of Mexico is known by scientists, regulatory agencies and conservation organizations as a “hotbed” area of dolphin harassment. Interactions between humans and wild dolphins routinely occur through close vessel approaches or through direct contact...

  19. Potential Welfare Impacts of Chase and Capture of Small Cetaceans during Drive Hunts in Japan

    | Contributor(s):: Vail, Courtney S., Reiss, Diana, Brakes, Philippa, Butterworth, Andrew

    Drive hunts are a method to herd, capture and kill small cetaceans (whales and dolphins) in coastal waters of some countries including Japan and the Faroe Islands. In Japan, these methods are often associated with the acquisition of live dolphins for international marine parks and aquaria. During...
