The Wildlife Evolution and Behavior program, or web, at Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute is dedicated to basic and applied research on mammals especially in remote locations like the Arctic. Our research focuses on behavioral, ecological and evolutionary aspects of species vulnerability and resilience, especially in times of change, and our work is a collaborative effort with many partners including Native peoples across the north.

Sept 3, 2020: We just launched our first Crowd Funding campaign. Working with our team at HBOI, FAU Funder just launched

'Life on the Edge'

We're hoping you can help us raise funds to get back to the Arctic to conduct crucial studies on beluga whale vulnerability and resilience  in this time of rapid change.

Please visit the FAU Funder site and make a donation today.

Thanks for your support

May 1, 2020: A new study on bottlenose dolphin nocturnal behavior was published today in the journal Animal Biotelemetry. It reveals how individual dolphins in a lagoon system in Florida have very unique movement patterns and habitat preferences, regularly travel out to the ocean, and also travel up rivers and freshwater canals.
