The Caribbean Cetacean Communication Project  focuses on a novel approach to understanding vocal and non-vocal means of communication between conspecifics. 


The multidisciplinary approach incorporates an equal emphasis on behavioral ecology, acoustics, comparative anatomy & physiology, and evolutionary biology.  The goal is to further investigate communication between adults and calves in close proximity to each other and across long distances.
