New Paper By My Friend Dr. Kate Sprogis (and MUCRU): On the sex differences in abundance, movements, and survival of bottlenose dolphins off south-west Australia. The article is Open Access so go and read it now!

Funny Take On The New Old Spice Advert: Six ways the ad violates the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

Absolutely Horrific Public Behaviour: An endangered Franciscana dolphin in Argentine has died after it washed up and beach-goers jostled to take selfies with it. Heartbreaking.
