  6. An empirical case study examining effectiveness of environmental enrichment in two captive Australian Sea Lions ( Neophoca cinerea )

    Contributor(s):: Smith, B. P., Litchfield, C. A.

    This case study examined the effect of environmental enrichment on the activity budgets of a male and female Australian Sea Lion (Neophoca cinerea) housed together at Adelaide Zoo. Using non-food-related (intrinsic) and food-related (extrinsic) enrichment objects, the study conducted an ABABA...

  7. An underwater wearable computer for two way human-dolphin communication experimentation

    Contributor(s):: Daniel Kohlsdorf, Scott Gilliland, Peter Presti, Thad Starner, Denise Herzing

    Research in dolphin cognition and communication in the wild is still a challenging task for marine biologists. Most problems arise from the uncontrolled nature of field studies and the challenges of building suitable underwater research equipment. We present a novel underwater wearable computer...

    Contributor(s):: Parsons, E. C. M., Rice, J. P., Sadeghi, L.

    In 2008, a preliminary study was conducted to provide information on awareness of cetacean (whale, dolphin and porpoise) conservation issues and the US government's policy on whaling, in a test group of US university students (n=230). When given a list of whale species, 39% of the participants...

  13. Behavior of a solitary sociable female bottlenose dolphin ( Tursiops truncatus ) off the coast of Kent, southeast England

    Contributor(s):: Eisfeld, S. M., Simmonds, M. P., Stansfield, L. R.

    This article provides a report of the behavior of a solitary sociable dolphin studied on the southeast coast of England in 2007. This is the first study of its kind in which behavior of such a nonhuman animal was systematically studied. By the time of this study, this young female was highly...

  14. Behavior of dolphins towards adults and children during swim-with-dolphin programs and towards children with disabilities during therapy sessions

    Contributor(s):: Brensing, K., Linke, K.

    In recent years, dolphin-assisted therapy has become very popular and an increasing number of facilities worldwide offer therapy programs with dolphins. In contrast to other animal-assisted therapy programs, dolphins are not domestic animals; they are mostly caught in the wild and there are still...

  15. Behavioural responses of captive common dolphins Delphinus delphis to a 'Swim-with-Dolphin' programme

    Contributor(s):: Kyngdon, D. J., Minot, E. O., Stafford, K. J.

    We monitored the effects of a `Swim-with-Dolphin' (SWD) programme on the behaviour of three female common dolphins. They were studied from January 1999 to July 1999 at Marineland, Napier, New Zealand. Before, during and after SWD sessions we recorded: (1) the use of a refuge area, (2) the...

  16. Behavioural responses of juvenile steller sea lions to abdominal surgery: developing an assessment of post-operative pain

    Contributor(s):: Walker, K. A., Horning, M., Mellish, J. A. E., Weary, D. M.

    Marking and tracking of marine mammals is required to gain a better understanding of life history traits; however, some marking procedures used are likely painful. Recent technological advances include intra-abdominally implanted archival telemetry devices for the life-long monitoring of...

  17. Behavioural responses of juvenile Steller sea lions to hot-iron branding

    Contributor(s):: Walker, K. A., Mellish, J. A. E., Weary, D. M.

    Contributor(s):: Leane, E., Nicol, S.

    The open ocean is an alien place for human beings and for most of history it has been studied using very indirect means. A great deal of what we know about animals that live on land, from ants to elephants, is based on centuries of direct natural history observations of animals alive and in situ....
