Late in 2010 scientists from the Mitchell / Seuront Laboratories at Flinders University in Adelaide joined volunteers on a field survey to a numberÂ of monitoring sites on Kangaroo Islandâ€™s North Coast. Professor Laurent Seuront, PhD candidates Nardi Cribb and Coraline ChapperonÂ performed water column tests to underpin Nardiâ€™s habitat research which will incorporate data from Kangaroo Island Dolphin Watch. Discussions regarding substrate types have resulted in current extensive modifications and reformatting of Dolphin Watch data to facilitate this usage. Professor Seuront expressed great interest in the enormous research potential offered by Kangaroo Islandâ€™s wild dolphin populations. The benefits of such collaborative effort are many and assist in our efforts towards protection and conservation.
