Sandy's Sense-ational Senses

from Dolphin Research Center

Program image

Can dolphins see in color? What do dolphins hear? Does everything taste fishy to a dolphin?  Explore the world of the ocean and how the senses of dolphins are like ours with Sandy at the Dolphin Research Center! Students will participate in a live studio-based distance learning with Dolphin Research Center Staff to learn about their 5 senses and how those senses match up with those of bottlenose dolphins. At the end students have the opportunity to ask a dolphin expert questions about dolphins while also learning how they can lessen their impact on the marine environment. All studio-based distance learning programs include a live instructor interaction with video clips from all around our beautiful Florida Keys facility.

Ocean Literacy Principles
• 5A Ocean life ranges in size from the smallest living things, microbes, to the largest animal on Earth, blue whales.
• 5D Ocean biology provides many unique examples of life cycles, adaptations, and important relationships among organisms (symbiosis, predator-prey dynamics, and energy transfer) that do not occur on land.
• 6D Humans affect the ocean in a variety of ways. Laws, regulations, and resource management affect what is taken out and put into the ocean. Human development and activity leads to pollution (point source, nonpoint source, and noise pollution), changes to ocean chemistry (ocean acidification), and physical modifications (changes to beaches, shores, and rivers). In addition, humans have removed most of the large vertebrates from the ocean.
• 6G Everyone is responsible for caring for the ocean. The ocean sustains life on Earth and humans must live in ways that sustain the ocean. Individual and collective actions are needed to effectively manage ocean resources for all.
