Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins!

This is my dolphin database, a collection of information on dolphins I have been keeping for sometime. It's VERY MUCH out of date, at this point it is still online mostly for nostaglia.

This database was originally created in 1992 or 1993, where it was published on the FlipSide BBS in Ottawa, Ontario. It migrated to the WWW in 1995, and has been online continuously since then! Although there are many other dolphin pages these days, I'm proud to have contributed as one of the first online sources of cetacean information!

However, please note this information is outdated! I have not had any time to keep the information up to date. Please take this into account when noting any information regarding "current" status or numbers.

(!PLEASE NOTE! - I am not representative of any organization, I do not work with dolphins and never have, I am not a researcher or even a student. I am unable to supply further information.

8 Aug 07 - based on a BBC article at, it appears that the Baiji may now be extinct. I've updated the species article. Thanks to the Mad Scientist forums for letting me know.
22 Apr 06 - I've transcribed a wonderful tutorial on How to Draw a Dolphin. It was done by the extraordinarily talented Vantid.
31 Jan 06 - Sadly, I was informed that Mr. James Fitzgerald, one of the scientists involved with the military dolphin research program, passed away earlier this month. As there was some uncertainty regarding some of the words or actions attributed to him (with the sources being primarily Greenpeace publications), I've updated the header on the articles that mention him to include an exerpt from his obituary that lists some of his rather remarkable achievements.
