Read the latest news from the Marine Conservation Ecology Lab

Our lab back to St Pierre et Miquelon (a small French archipelago south of Newfoundland) next week for more work on cetaceans and their relationship with their prey @ecology_lab @FIUEnvironment

Congratulations to Heather Neal, an FIU #NSF REU undergraduate student who presented her work today on Mercury contamination of bottlenose dolphins in Biscayne bay. @FIUEnvironment

Our #manatee population is at risk & it's up to us to do something about it ๐ŸŒŠ

#Seagrass is the # 1 food source for manatees but its disappearing quickly, including in #BiscayneBay. So manatees are now eating algae, says Aarin-Conrad Allen from our @ecology_lab

This is a wake up call. After already shattering the record for most manatees lost in a single year, Florida may very well lose over 1000 manatees by the end of the year. Especially with another red tide already devastating the gulf coast. @savethemanatee @FIUEnvironment https://twitter.com/LOUISAGUIRRE/status/1415439428345073664

Our latest paper out in @MEPS_IR on the dietary plasticity of Dusky and Heaviside's dolphins in Namibia led by superstar postdoc @cabrutal. A fantastic collaboration with @seasearchafrica @Simon_Elwen and others! https://www.int-res.com/abstracts/meps/v669/p227-240/

Our new paper is out! What drives cetaceans to form mixed-species groups? Great collaboration with @jonathan_syme our lead author and @GuidoJParra https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fmars.2021.678173/full

I think I would be spinning too if I had a remora that size stuck to me! Image obtained during fieldwork for @fvivier89 PhD research. Image obtained under NOAA permit #21476 #SpinnerDolphins #BigIsland

Our new paper is out! Feeding Ecology of Elusive Caribbean Killer Whales Inferred From Bayesian Stable Isotope Mixing Models and Whalersโ€™ Ecological Knowledge https://www.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fmars.2021.648421 @FIUEnvironment

See our paper "Distributions of Arctic and Northwest Atlantic killer whales inferred from oxygen isotopes" at https://rdcu.be/chod9 Distributions inferred from these isotopes, as well as other evidence, suggests there isn't a single population distributed across the NW Atlantic
