Fortunately, Dr. Michelle Green and Dr. Denise Herzing have been able to assess paternity using a non-invasive method by collecting fecal samples (yes, this means human researchers collect dolphin poop). So far, Dr. Green has shown that the oldest males in the population are siring offspring, and in all pairings but one, the male is older than the female (check out the scientific publication here).

CHAT (Cetacean Hearing and Telemetry) is an underwater computer designed by Dr. Thad Starner and his team at Georgia Tech. CHAT receives sounds via two hydrophones, and produces sounds through an underwater speaker. The Wild Dolphin Project, under the direction of Dr. Denise Herzing and with the help of colleagues Dr. Adam Pack and Dr. Fabienne Delfour, created a few basic artificial sounds, specifically whistles (outside of the dolphins natural repertoire) to label a few play objects (Sargassum â€" a natural play toy, scarf, and rope â€" toys that humans bring in the water).
