Dolphin Diaries: My 25 years with Spotted Dolphins in the Bahamas, by Denise L. Herzing, Ph.D. "Every dolphin is someone's mother, brother, or friend. I wish them to be always in their world, on their terms, where they belong."
This is an in-depth look at Dr. Herzing's career as a dolphin researcher, covering all aspects of her ongoing work.
“Denise Herzing’s new book about her unique experiences studying dolphin tribes over two decades in the Bahamas demonstrates the importance of keeping dolphins wild and free. We can learn a lot from dolphins on their own terms in the ocean. This is the beauty of Dolphin Diaries.” – Ric O’Barry, featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary The Cove; director of the Dolphin Project at the Earth Island Institute; and author of Behind the Dolphin Smile
“Dolphin Diaries carries its reader into the world of one of the planet’s most intelligent, curious, and perhaps misunderstood creatures. At the same time, the book is a personal account of Dr. Herzing’s one-of-a-kind journey through more than twenty-five years of research. In this compelling account, she conveys a sense of how alien and yet how familiar the dolphins are. Luckily for the rest of us, she writes beautifully – this book is not to be missed.” – Bernd Heinrich, author of The Nesting Season and The Mind of the Raven
