Assessing dolphin extinction risk in presence of hybridization

Yesterday Nina presented her work on "Assessing dolphin extinction risk in presence of hybridization" at the World Marine Mammal Conference in Barcelona, Spain. This investigation is based on our research on striped, common and admixed dolphins in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. Brava Nina!

Marco, marine biologist

Today our intern Marco Bregoli graduated in Marine Biology at the University of Padua, Italy, with a thesis on the social organisation of bottlenose dolphins in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece. His defense was excellent and he received a 110 Cum Laude (the maximum score). We are very proud of him!
