Last night, David Donnelly presented a public talk on cetaceans (whales, dolphins and porpoises) in Victoria. The evening was hosted at Melbourne Sea Life Aquarium as part of the ‘TRACKS’ Marine Discovery series of public talks. This series of public talks is designed to provide opportunities for learning as well as to help raise funds for small research groups. David’s presentation gave a comprehensive overview of cetacean species that reside in or migrate through Victorian waters, with special attention paid to killer whales (Orcinus orca) Earlier in the evening the Dolphin Research Institute’s research officer Sue Mason presented an informative talk on her PhD topic which is focused on the unique resident common dolphin population within Port Phillip Bay. The evening attracted over 50 attendees and was successful in raising just over $1,000 for the Dolphin Research Institute’s on-going dolphin monitoring program.
