Outer Banks Center for Dolphin Research to Install Educational Walking Tour – The Coastland Times
The Outer Banks Center for Dolphin Research (OBXCDR) has announced a new upcoming public exhibit made possible by a grant from the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
“This spring, we will be installing an educational walking tour on the Nags Head Causeway,” said a news release from OBXCDR. “The walking tour will be available year-round to the public and will focus on teaching the ecology of Roanoke Sound. OBXCDR will partner with the North Carolina Coastal Federation, Coastal Studies Institute, Albemarle Pamlico National Estuary Partnership, Kitty Hawk Kites and Nags Head Dolphin Watch to develop five information panels outlining sound resources, local research efforts and how community members can contribute to conservation.

Using photo-identification, the group is documenting the distinctive markings on the dorsal fins of dolphins sighted in Roanoke Sound to learn more about dolphin population size, movement patterns, habitat use and habitat. ‘ecology. These results are used to promote public awareness and education programs for the local community.
